Kabongo Tshimanga has joined Vanarama Conference side Aldershot Town on a youth loan.
Speaking to mkdons.com, manager Karl Robinson said: “This will be Kabongo’s first spell away from the Club and it will provide him with an excellent chance to get some experience of playing senior football at a competitive level.
"As with all loan players, we’ll keep a keen eye on his progress as he aims to develop further, in what has already been a fantastic season for him.”
Tshimanga has been in excellent form for the Under-18s in 2014/15, scoring 43 goals including seven braces and three hat-tricks. The 17-year-old also netted twice in the Final Third Development Cup and made his first-team debut in the FA Cup victory over Port Vale back in November.
He will now be looking to continue his goal scoring form for the Hampshire outfit and help fire them into the top half of the Conference table.
