Healey: MK Dons was the best-possible move for me

On-loan striker talks to Red Dot about his switch to Stadium MK...

12 September 2018

Rhys Healey left it late before securing a loan switch this summer but believes his patience was rewarded with the ‘best-possible move’ - a move to MK Dons.

Healey secured a temporary transfer to Stadium MK in late August - a deal which will see the Cardiff City man remain with MK Dons up until and including Saturday 5th January 2019.

The 23-year-old, who scored his first MK Dons goal in the Checkatrade Trophy tie with Peterborough United, believes the move was the ideal one to make at this stage in his career and is relishing the opportunity to ply his trade in Milton Keynes and work under manager Paul Tisdale.

“I wanted to go out on loan and play some games because I missed a large part of last season due to injury,” he told this Saturday’s edition of Red Dot. “It was a case of finding the best move for me and leaving it late in the window was probably the best move as I found a club in MK Dons that is best suited to me.

“The way the club are going about its business and with the manager that we have here, the move suits me. You can see by the squad here that the aim is to do well and, for me, it would be nice to be in and around that and help us be up there.

“There are a lot of games to be played in this league so there will always be chances to impress. I’m hoping to show the manager, the players and the fans that I’m here to help them achieve what they want to achieve.”
