Neilson took Muirhead to Tynecastle last summer on a one-year deal. He failed to claim a regular starting place but now has the chance to revitalise his career in England's League One under Neilson, who was appointed MK Dons manager last month.

Muirhead scored two goals in 19 appearances for Hearts, both against Rangers in Neilson's final game in charge.

The Edinburgh club have received an undisclosed fee for the remaining few months of the forward's contract.
