Robbo focused on recruiting

10 July 2015

Karl Robinson has revealed he’s looking to make ‘four or five’ more signings ahead of 2015/16 campaign.

The Dons boss has already added three new players to his promotion-winning squad in the form of Simon Church, Cody Cropper and Dale Jennings, while defender Joe Walsh penned a permanent deal after enjoying a loan spell at stadiummk last season.

“The Club have worked hard over the summer to get the wages right for this particular level,” Robinson told MK Dons PlayerHD. “We are where we are and the players appreciate that – they see this as an opportunity to play at the second highest level in English football.”

He added: “I think I still need four or five (new players) that are going to strengthen the group - we have to get the signings right.

“We have an idea of who they may be and we’re speaking to their clubs, obviously. Hopefully, if we pull some of these off, we’ll be in a good positon.”

One bit of transfer business that was conducted recently at stadiummk was the release of Danny Green.

The winger made 18 appearances during 2014/15 campaign and will now continue his career with Luton Town in Sky Bet League 2.

“(Greeny and I) had a sit down and he asked me if he would have more game time next year and from my perspective I couldn’t see there being a great deal. We both felt, for his career, he needed to play.

“He didn’t play much last year so it was going to be increasingly difficult for him to do so this year. We just decided that he isn’t the type of wide player we want. We’ve gone for wingers we feel can be explosive and run past people, whereas Greeny is more of a technician.

“He goes with all my wishes and all the luck in the world. He’s going to a good football club to work under a manager who knows very well.”

Robinson continued: “These are the types of moves we have to make to balance things out and recoup certain things in order for us to move forward.”
