Dons swoop for sought-after defender

Robbie Neilson makes his fifth signing ahead of 2017/18 season...

14 July 2017

MK Dons have swooped to secure the services of Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Ethan Ebanks-Landell on a season-long loan deal.

Ebanks-Landell, 24, joined up with the team at the Club’s training base in Hungary early Friday morning after finalising the loan switch which will run until the end of the 2017/18 campaign.

The imposing centre-back, who has 111 career appearances to his name, spent the 2016/17 season on loan with Sheffield United and helped them to the Sky Bet League One title, featuring 34 times and scoring five goals.

That made it two League One winners’ medals for Ebanks-Landell, who also played a part in Wolves’ championship-clinching campaign back in 2013/14.

Ebanks-Landell told “I’m excited to be here. MK Dons are a good club and hopefully I can help them have a successful season.

“It’s good to meet up with the guys straight away in Hungary. I’m looking forward to getting into action as soon as possible.”

Robbie Neilson said of his new defender: “He’s a very talented player for this level and we beat off a number of clubs, including Championship sides, to bring him here.

“His record speaks for itself having won the League One title twice in the past four years. I’m very excited about having him as part of the squad this season.”
