George Baldock has signed a deal with MK Dons but will spend the 2015/16 season on loan at Oxford United.
However, manager Karl Robinson has allowed the 22-year-old to join Sky Bet League 2 outfit Oxford until the end of the forthcoming campaign, in order for him to get regular first-team football.
Speaking to mkdons.com, Baldock said: “I’m very excited to be able to commit my future to the Club for another two years.
“I do need to play regular football and going out on loan to Oxford will give me that opportunity – it will stand me in good stead for when I come back here.”
Born and raised in Buckinghamshire, Baldock joined the Dons at the age of 10 before making his debut as a 17-year-old in a 2-0 victory over Tranmere Rovers in January 2011.
He made his full debut came several months later when he started the Dons’ final day clash away at Oldham Athletic.
The next two campaigns saw Baldock feature sporadically for the first-team, while also enjoy loan spells at Tamworth, Northampton Town and Icelandic side IBV, where he played in the Europa League.
The energetic full-back truly broke into the first-team set up during the 2013/14 season, when he made 46 appearances in all competitions, while he also scored his first two senior goals, one of which was a stunning stoppage-time winner away at Swindon Town.
Last season, Baldock featured a further 14 times for Karl Robinson’s side, including a start in that memorable 4-0 triumph over Manchester United in the Capital One Cup.
However, in February, he moved to the Kassam Stadium and made 12 appearances for the U’s before injury forced him to miss the final few games of the season.
