Midfielder moves to Stadium MK on loan...

4 September 2020

MK Dons have signed Stoke City midfielder Lasse Sørensen on loan.

The Danish youth international arrived at Stadium MK today to complete the deal, which will see him spend the 2020/21 campaign with the Dons.

Sørensen, 20, becomes Russell Martin’s fourth new addition this summer and could make his debut in Saturday’s Carabao Cup tie with Coventry City, subject to EFL and FA clearance.

“I’m very pleased to be here and I’m looking forward to getting going,” he told iFollow MK Dons after finalising his move to Stadium MK.

“There has been a bit of interest for a while and then the opportunity to play football here finally arose. I talked it through with all those around me and we thought it was the perfect opportunity for me.

“I see myself as a player that likes to play football and get on the ball, which is what Russ is trying to do here. I also like to bring energy up and down the pitch.

“I can’t wait to get going and to do my best for the club. I want to do as well as I can.”

Born in Vejen, Sørensen began his career with Danish Superliga side Esbjerg fB before joining Stoke City in January 2016.

He made his professional debut in May 2018, as a substitute in a Premier League encounter with Swansea City. Sørensen played 76 minutes, providing an assist for Peter Crouch in a 2-1 Potters win.

Last season, he featured six times for Stoke including a start in their first match back following the Covid-19 outbreak. He was also a regular for their Under-21s side, playing 17 Premier League 2 games and registering five assists.

Russell Martin said of his new midfielder: “I'm excited to get him here to Stadium MK.

“He's an excellent player and a really good character. He will bring understanding of the game and he's got an incredible range of passing. He's fantastic at set-pieces, and he's a powerful athlete too.

“We've had contact with him and Stoke throughout the period. I know for sure that he turned down two high-profile clubs in League One to come to us because he believes in what we're doing. That’s huge for us.”
