Loanees return to parent clubs

Trio would have been eligible to feature in remaining nine fixtures had the 2019/20 season continued...

MK Dons would like to place on record its thanks to loanees Andrew Fisher, Carlton Morris and Louis Thompson, who have returned to their parent clubs following the curtailment of the 2019/20 season.

Had the 2019/20 campaign continued, all three players would have been available to feature in the final nine fixtures after agreements were reached with Blackburn Rovers (Andrew Fisher) and Norwich City (Carlton Morris and Louis Thompson).

In an interview with MK Citizen, manager Russell Martin said: "Carlton and Louis were great for us off the pitch as well as on it. Both were great for me in the dressing room, really great characters and it gave us such a great feeling to have players like that in there.

"Fish was great for us, even though he didn't get a game. He gelled really well with the goalkeepers, as back-up to Lee and I think had Lee been injured, we'd have been in really safe hands with him in there."

Morris made 10 appearances for the Dons after moving to Stadium MK as Russell Martin’s first signing on 7 January. The striker scored twice, including a goal on his debut to earn Russell Martin’s men a 1-1 draw away at League One champions Coventry City.

Norwich City teammate Thompson arrived soon after, with the central midfielder going on to play nine times, including starts in the victories over Wycombe Wanderers, Rochdale and Bolton Wanderers.

Fisher was MK Dons’ final signing of the January Transfer Window. The goalkeeper joined on loan from Blackburn Rovers and was an ever present in the matchday squad following his arrival.

All three players return to their parent clubs with the best wishes and gratitude of everyone at MK Dons.
