Tymon: MK Dons really excites me

Defender relishing chance of first-team football...

1 February 2018

The 18-year-old completed his season-long loan move to Stadium MK on Tuesday morning and revealed his joy after completing the move.

“I’m delighted to be here, I had a few offers from different clubs over the past few weeks - but MK Dons really excited me. 

“The chance to play regular football at a big club like the Dons is very exciting for me personally. I know Dan through the England set-up and he’s another reason why I chose here.

“I’m delighted to be here and looking forward to playing regular games." 

Tymon, who has featured for England at various youth levels, has played under Micciche and is looking forward to be reunited with his former coach.

“I know Dan through the England set-up and he’s another reason why I chose to come here. I’m delighted to be playing under him again.

“When I met Dan the other night and he told me that he likes the way I play and wants me to be a part of his project. If you look at MK Dons - you see them as a good footballing team.”

Tymon’s integration period into the side will be made a lot easier by the number of England youth internationals that he’s played alongside.

“I’ve played with both Ike Ugbo and Marcus Tavernier at various levels. I hadn’t seen Ike since the Summer but weirdly Tav messaged me last night asking me if I was coming down.

“I saw them both today and it was exactly the same as being away with England, we caught up, spoke about a few things and trained well together.”

“There is a good mix of young and old in the dressing room and to be honest with you I think that helps. The senior lads have been great with me today, they helped in training and taught me a lot already.

“I think everyone was bang at it in training and I looked at it and thought - how are we in this position.”

One player that Tymon is looking forward to working with is a certain Dean Lewington, the duo are very much at different stages of their career. Lewington has featured over 500 times for MK Dons, while Tymon is just getting his feet under the carpet within the professional game.

“Straight away Dean Lewington was the first person I met, he came straight over to me and on the training pitch - you can see how much experience he has. 

“He’s a great man too, he helped me with different ways of defending, which is massive for me because I’ve got a long way to go in the game and a lot of things to develop.

“I think for the remainder of the season - I’ve got the perfect role model in him to help me develop.”

The youngster concluded the interview by giving the fans an insight as to what the fans can expect from him as a player. 

“I’m more attacking and that’s how I’ve been throughout my short career so far. I was the same during my time at Hull and Stoke too. 

“I’m hoping to bring that here and here the manager told me that he wants me to do - he wants the full-backs to attack and excite the crowd. I think I can do that.”
