Despite playing over 120 professional games for four different clubs - MK Dons is just the second permanent home during Jordan Houghton’s career.
The 23-year-old departed Chelsea in the Summer after spending 15 years with the Premier League Club before signing on at Stadium MK in July.
His performances so far this season, have earned plaudits from both Paul Tisdale, and the MK Dons faithful, with Houghton impressing in both midfield and defence.
Speaking after the draw with Northampton Town, Houghton stated his joy over becoming an MK Dons player.
“I’ve found my home at MK Dons,” the midfielder told the media. “I’m pleased to be here – hopefully, I can kick on now and show more of what I can do.
“It’s been a different year for me, every year in football is different – but it’s been an enjoyable one.
“It’s difficult when you have a big turnaround of players including a set of new staff coming in. There is so much quality in this side I don’t see why we shouldn’t have done what we have so far this season.
“It’s very pleasing but there are still games and things to improve upon – we all know that and are all on the same page moving in the same direction.”
Houghton also took the time in his post-match presser to praise the MK Dons faithful, who have continued to back the boys in their numbers this season.
“When you’re coming out to warm up and there are 1,400 fans - it gives you a good feeling. It’s frustrating that we didn’t hold on to get the three points for them.
Despite the 2-2 draw at the PTS Academy Stadium, Houghton felt there were positives to take from the clash.
“It’s disappointing to come away with just a point but I think it was a real positive reaction from our Boxing Day game.
“To come here and play some nice football was a positive. It was a really good away performance, we countered really well, the three up front looked really sharp - we were solid defensively as well.
He concluded, "There were so many positives to take from the performance."
