which will see him stay with the Dons until Sunday 6th October. The winger has been drafted in as extra cover for the Dons who currently have both Daniel Powell and Dean Bowditch sidelined with long-term injuries. mkstadiumThe 25-year-old has put pen to paper on a month-long loan switch to
Speaking to mkdons.com Robinson said: “He is someone I tried to sign, ironically, 12 months ago this very day. He has great experience even though he’s only 25. We’re very light in the wide areas at the moment but he’s going to bring tremendous quality. It’s quite an exciting one for us. He’s somebody who’ll create a lot of goals. We feel we’ve got goals in the team and hopefully he can add to the assists.
“He is coming here to get games but he is also coming here to prove a point to Charlton as well. In the time that he spends here we are going to get performance levels, he’s going to lift the group in the short term because he’s a quality player.
“We’re in a good position, we’re sixth in the League and we don’t want to sit on our laurels, it’s my job to keep us pushing forward and we feel we can do that with the acquisition with Danny Green.”
Green was on the Charlton books as a schoolboy but left the club at 15 years old before joining Northampton Town’s academy. The Cobblers signed the Harlow-born midfielder on professional terms, however, he moved to Nottingham Forest in 2007.
Green’s time at Forest was blighted with injury and following his release from the City Ground a chance meeting during a coaching course with Martin Hayes, the then-Bishop’s Stortford manager, opened up a route back into football through the non-League.
After a season at Bishop’s Stortford, Green caught the attention of Dagenham & Redbridge and joined them on a free transfer. Green made a huge impact in his first season with the Daggers as he played in every league match and scored in the League 2 Play-Off final, one of his 14 that season, to help them gain promotion to League 1.
In 2010/11 Green’s red-hot form for the Daggers continued into League 1 as he made a further 46 appearances in the League and cup and netted 13 times.
In August 2011 Charlton, the club he left as a schoolboy, came back for Green and signed the winger for an undisclosed fee on a three-year deal.
In three seasons Green has made 59 appearances for Chris Powell’s side and now makes the temporary switch to MK1 looking to boost the Dons’ fine start to the season.
He will wear the number 23 shirt and goes straight into the squad for tomorrow’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Round 1 match against Northampton Town at stadiummk.
An exclusive interview with Danny will be available to view on MK Dons Player later tonight.
