George Baldock has today (Wednesday) put pen to paper on a new two-year deal with Milton Keynes Dons, keeping him at the Club until 2014.
The 19-year-old, who is currently on loan with Blue Square Bet Premier side Tamworth, is highly rated by the Dons management and made his League debut at the age of 17.
The potential of the starlet, who came through the Club’s successful Academy system, has not gone unnoticed and boss Karl Robinson saw fit to extend the midfielder’s stay at stadiummk by an extra two years.
George spent most of summer with Icelandic side IBV where he made 19 appearances and scored once during his three month loan spell.
During his time with Northern Europe, George featured in the Europa League First Round Qualifying where his side were knocked out by Irish side St. Patrick’s Athletic.
After returning to England at the end of August, the Aylesbury-born midfielder linked up with fellow Academy graduates Charlie Collins and Jordan Ivey-Ward at Tamworth where he’s started both matches for Marcus Law’s side.
George’s loan deal runs up until December 31st when he will return to the Club, eager to fight for a place in Robinson’s side.
After inking his new deal, George said: “I’m really pleased to have signed a new deal, this Club is the perfect place to be for a youngster, whether you are playing or in and around the squad because there is so much talent here to improve you as a player.
“If you ask any footballer, signing a new contract is a great achievement because there are so many good players out of the game. It’s great to sign for such a good Club.
“Like any player here, my ambition is to help push the first team move forward. It is always going take me a bit longer to break into the first team on a regular basis because I’m a midfielder and the talent in our midfield is second to none, but on the other hand it is good to train with them and learn from them in the next two years.”
