24 October 2013

MK Dons have today (Thursday) completed the emergency loan signing of West Ham United defender Jordan Spence.

The 6ft 2in defender, who can play at either right-back or in the centre of defence, has represented England at every youth level and will provide excellent cover for a Dons side that has suffered from injuries and suspensions at the back this season.

Spence will be available for the side’s trip to Tranmere Rovers this weekend, as well as the upcoming fixtures against Walsall, Oldham Athletic and Bradford City. However, a decision has yet to be made regarding his eligibility for the FA Cup.

A West Ham United trainee, Spence made his professional debut while on loan at Leyton Orient in November 2008 before he joined then-Championship outfit Scunthorpe United temporarily the following season.

At the end of the 2009/10 campaign, Spence made his first team debut for the Hammers in a 1-1 home draw with Manchester City before he was once again loaned out, this time to Bristol City, in March 2011.

After featuring 11 times for the Robins, then-West Ham manager Avram Grant recalled Spence to provide cover for the Premier League outfit,  with the youngster making a further two Premier League appearances, both of which were starts.

After spending the 2011/12 season with Bristol City, Spence forced his way into the West Ham United last year, making seven first team appearances including three in the Premier League.

Spence, however, has yet to feature for the Hammers this season, having spent the whole of September with Sheffield Wednesday, and therefore he’ll arrive in MK1 keen to impress Sam Allardyce and his team.

Spence will wear the number 23 shirt.
