MK Dons snap up Wolves midfielder

Stephen Gleeson
Gleeson has only made three substitute appearances for Wolves

MK Dons have signed 20-year-old Wolves midfielder Stephen Gleeson on loan until the end of the season.

"We're bringing Stephen in to help us in the rush to the end of the season, Dons manager Roberto di Matteo told the club's official website.

"He's a player that can add a lot of quality to our midfield and give us some more strength in that department."

Currently on international duty with Republic of Ireland Under-21s, Gleeson is available from Saturday 4 April.

Gleeson is a product of the Wolves academy, but has spent much of his time out on loan at Stockport, for whom he has made over 50 appearances.

He also played four times in a short loan spell at Hereford and made his full Republic of Ireland debut against Ecuador in 2007.

Di Matteo added: "He played against us in the home game against Stockport earlier this season, but we've been watching him in other games too and we feel he can be an asset to us."
