After penning professional terms with MK Dons, Hugo Logan hopes to follow in the footsteps of his peers and break through into the first team at Stadium MK.
Logan became one of the latest young Dons to graduate from the Academy when he put pen-to-paper on his first professional contract last week alongside teammate Sam Nombe.
The midfielder will become part of Robbie Neilson’s squad for the 2017/18 season and hopes to make an impact on the side, just like many Academy graduates have done before him.
“(Sam and I) join a long line of Academy players who have turned professional and hopefully we can keep the momentum by breaking through into the first-team and playing the best football we can for the Club,” Logan told MK Dons PlayerHD.
“It’s a great achievement (to turn professional). I feel like I’ve worked hard over the last two years and hopefully I can kick on now and improve even further.
“I want to hit the ground running in pre-season and get involved in as many games as possible. Hopefully, if I play well then the gaffer might give me a chance to play in the league.”
“Obviously I’m excited to hopefully one day play in front of the fans as well as my family and friends.”
He added: “I can’t wait to come in, get to know everyone and start to play some games.”
So what can supporters expect from the 18-year-old?
“I’m a creative midfielder who is quite intelligent on the ball,” he said. “I look to combine and get as many assists as possible.”
