MK Dons recruit Man City winger

Milton Keynes Dons

Milton Keynes Dons have signed Manchester City winger Donal McDermott on an initial month-long loan.

The 18-year-old is a Republic of Ireland Under-19 international.

The left-sided player said: "I'm delighted to be here and I'm looking forward to helping the team continue their good start to the season.

"This is a good opportunity for me to play some competitive football with a team and under a manager that like to play the game in the right way."

Dons manager Roberto Di Matteo said: "Donal will give us some more options in wide areas and bring some added pace and quality to the team.

"We need to be patient with him because he is only 18 but he is an exciting player with a good background and I'm hopeful we can make the loan long-term."
