Martin made for Dons style

5 July 2021

Josh Martin believes the transition from Norwich City to MK Dons will be made easier due to the two sides similar style of play.

The 19-year-old was in and around the first team at Carrow Road last season making a total of 12 appearances – scoring two goals in the process.

Daniel Farke’s side also enjoyed the majority of possession in their games and their players are also encouraged to be creative.

Martin says he’s looking forward to his future under his new manager as he looks to impress with his talents at Stadium MK.

“It’s a style I’m used to and the formation suits me really well,” Martin told iFollow MK Dons in his maiden interview. “it’s a team and formation where you can really express yourself. You can really play good football, I’m hoping this season we can do really well.

“Norwich told me MK Dons were interested, I’ve heard a lot about Russell at Norwich, I love him. He’s a good guy - I can’t wait to get started.

“I can bring goals and assists. I hope to bring creativity in the final third, I hope I can lift the team and bring us to the best possible position we can be.”

Martin, who is still a teenager, joins a young dressing room at Stadium MK, an environment he feels will get the best out of everyone.

“A lot of players here are in a similar position to me, it’s good to have more experienced players to learn from. Having young players in the team isn’t something you usually come across, we can relate on a lot of things - that’ll help create a good bond.

“The mindset we had was a winners mentality and that’s the mindset I’ve had for the last year, I hope we can get that here.

“I’ve been doing my own bits, but it’s tough when you’re not training, but I can’t wait to get started – let’s do it.”
