MK Dons have reached an agreement with Bristol City to allow Scott Golbourne to spend the remainder of the 2017/18 campaign at Stadium MK.
Golbourne, who made 21 appearances for the Dons during the first half of the season, is currently sidelined with a hip injury but this loan deal will ensure he can complete his rehabilitation under the watchful eye of the Club’s medical staff.
The defender, out of contract with the Robins this summer, is expected to return to action before the end of the season and will provide depth to Dan Micciche’s defence in time for the Sky Bet League One run-in.
Speaking to mkdons.com, Golbourne said: “I’ve enjoyed my time here so far so it is pleasing to be able to extend the loan and if I can play a few more games before the end of the season that will be a massive bonus.
“I’ve had a good conversation with the new manager and he was more than happy for me to stay. I knew Keith Millen from my time at Bristol City the first time around – he gave me my opportunity in first-team football so it is great to get the opportunity to work with him again.
“Having my future sorted for the remainder of the season and knowing where I’m going to be, will allow me to focus on achieving my goal of coming back and playing a part this season.”
Manager Dan Micciche said: “I am aware of the positive impact Scott Golbourne had in the first half of this season. He is extremely professional and is the type of player and character that I want here at this Football Club.
“His experience and professionalism will be crucial between now and May, both in the dressing room and on the pitch once he has recovered from injury – we are hopeful of having him available for selection before the end of the season.
“I believe he can play in a number of positions across the team, not only in defence, and that versatility will also be a crucial asset during the run in.”
