Dons capture Colclough

31 August 2016

MK Dons have signed Wigan Athletic winger Ryan Colclough on a season-long loan deal.

The 21-year-old will spend the 2016/17 campaign with the Dons after completing the switch to Stadium MK on Deadline Day.

Colclough scored 12 goals in 36 Sky Bet League One starts for Crewe Alexandra before joining Wigan in January 2016 and helping the Latics win promotion to the Championship – he scored twice in 10 appearances at the back end of the 2015/16 season.

Karl Robinson told “I’m ecstatic. He’s somebody who I tried to sign last season and has been one of our main targets for six months.

“He made his second-ever professional appearance against us and I remember watching his debut while we prepared for that game against Crewe.

“He can play off both sides. He comes from a club like Wigan, who play a similar style and he started at Crewe, which means he’s been developed properly.

“He’s very direct. He’s aggressive in his finishing and I think he’s certainly someone who can make us a better team. He’ll make us more dynamic offensively, being a goalscoring wide player."

Robinson added: "I look forward to working with him."
