Joe joins permanently

28 May 2015

The Dons have signed defender Joe Walsh from Crawley Town for an undisclosed fee.

Walsh, 23, spent time on loan at stadiummk last season and has made the move permanent by putting pen-to-paper on a three-year deal.

Speaking to mkdons.com, Walsh said: “I’m delighted to get this deal sorted. I enjoyed my time here on loan and it just supported what I already knew – this is a club going places and I’m looking forward to being a part of it all.”

“I’m really excited about playing in the Championship and I’m already itching to get back for pre-season. We’ve got a talented bunch of lads here and I’m sure we won’t just be making up the numbers.”
 
The former Crawley captain, who played alongside Dons team-mate Kyle McFadzean and worked under Head of Coaching Richie Barker, becomes manager Karl Robinson’s first signing ahead of the 2015/16 campaign.

Robinson said: “We signed Joe on loan with the intent to make him a permanent member of the squad so I’m pleased it’s been finalised.

“As I’ve said before, he gives us something we haven’t had for a while in terms of being a left-footed centre-half. He impressed us both in training and on the pitch last season and he adds to a strong group of centre-backs that we know can compete for starting places.”
