Oldfield has served as the Baggies' senior professional development coach for the past three years.

The 46-year-old also had a brief spell assisting with first-team duties when Keith Downing took over as caretaker manager last season.

Albion director of football administration Richard Garlick told the club's website, www.wba.co.uk: "David has been a great servant to the club during his time with us.

"But due to family and professional reasons he feels the move to MK Dons is an opportunity he cannot miss - and we wish him all the best for the future."

Albion are reported to be close to appointing a new head coach with Tim Sherwood among the leading contenders to succeed Pepe Mel.
