Dons looking to add experience in January

Dons boss discusses the January Transfer Window...

28 December 2019

Russell Martin hopes to add experience to his MK Dons side when the January Transfer Window opens next month.

In under a week’s time, EFL clubs will be able to make signings once again and the Dons are expected to be active in the month-long market, with the focus, for Martin, on adding some know-how to help aid his current squad.

“We need to improve,” Martin said in his post-match press conference at Roots Hal, after the 2-2 draw with Southend United. “I knew what I was coming into and I know what we need. We’re in a position where we might be able to get that soon.

“Since I took over, we’ve been looking at what we need. Every game has given us a bit more clarity in terms of what we need. We need a bit of help and works been underway for weeks on that.

“Our players are good enough at this level but the squad is a bit unbalanced and we lack certain things. There are a few key areas where we need people but we’ve also lost some experience and we lack a bit of that nouse on the pitch. We need a bit more experience to help the boys we’ve got.”

He continued: “How early we can do our business, I don’t know, because January can be very difficult. We are aware of what we need and it’s up to us to make sure that whoever we bring in, improves the team.

“This a brilliant Football Club to play for so who wouldn’t want to come here. It’s up to us to find the right ones to come and do that.”
