Dons sign U21 international striker on loan

30 January 2017

MK Dons have signed Fortuna Dusseldorf’s Belgium Under-21 international striker Maecky Ngombo on loan until the end of the season.

Ngombo arrived at Stadium MK on Monday to complete the deal and become Robbie Neilson’s third signing of the January transfer window.

The 21-year-old will wear the number 7 shirt.

“I’m really happy and excited,” Ngombo told MK Dons PlayerHD. “I’d like to think I’m a fast and technical player – hopefully I can bring a lot of action.

“It’s always been a dream to play in England. I’ve spoken to the manager and I believe we can do good things. I’m looking forward to training and playing.”

Ngombo, born in Belgium but of Congolese origin, has featured six times for Fortuna Dusseldorf in the second tier of German football. He joined the Flingeraner this summer from Dutch outfit Roda JC, with whom he scored four goals in the Eredivisie.

His performances in first-team and reserve matches have also seen him earn international recognition for Belgium at Under-21s level.

“We’re delighted to get him,” Neilson told

“He’s a talented player with pace and energy. He’s also got a very good pedigree having played in Holland and Germany, as well as featuring on the international stage with Belgium.

“He’ll be a good addition to the striking department at the Club.”

The deal is subject to international clearance, as well as approval from the EFL and the FA.
