mkdons.com lists a few things you may not know about loanee Josh Tymon...

Premier League starts to his name
Despite being just 18-years-old, Tymon has already tallied eight Premier League appearances, six of which have been starts.

The left-back’s first appearance in the top flight came as a starter for Hull City and over the last two seasons he has been trusted from the beginning against the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.

He was part of the Hull side that held Jose Mourinho’s United side to a goalless draw in February last year while that same month he played his role in helping the Tigers defeat Liverpool at the KC Stadium.

FA Cup delight
Tymon has enjoyed plenty of success in the Emirates FA Cup during his young career.

It was in the 2016/17 edition of the competition, where Tymon made his professional debut, featuring as a 17-year-old in Hull’s 3-1 victory over Bury at Gigg Lane. Later that campaign, he helped the Yorkshire club to a goalless draw away at Arsenal.

Last season, Tymon only played 17 minutes of Emirates FA Cup football but during that time managed to score his first career goal – an excellent left-footed strike in Hull’s 2-0 victory over Swansea City.

A third Young Lion
What do all of the Dons’ January signings have in common? All three – including Tymon – are England youth internationals.

Tymon has represented England at every age group since Under-17s and is currently a member of the Under-19s squad, where he plays alongside Dons teammate Marcus Tavernier.

He has, so far, totalled 13 international caps and will be hoping the experience gained at Stadium MK will help him achieve more in the future.

Summer success
In June, Tymon was a member of the England squad which successfully defended their Toulon Tournament title.

The left-back featured in all five of England’s matches, including the victory in the Final over the Ivory Coast.

During his time at the Tournament, Tymon played alongside former Dons loanee in Harvey Barnes as well as current Don Ike Ugbo.
