On loan MK Dons midfielder Diego Poyet has returned to his parent club West Ham United.

The 20-year-old has made 20 appearances for the Dons this season, but only made two starts last month.

Poyet will now return to Upton Park, where he is then likely to be loaned out to another club.

“We had a great conversation last week. It didn’t really work with him playing alongside Darren Potter. They are both top players, everyone knows how important Darren is to us.

I love developing young players and it’s not fair on him as a young player, not getting as many minutes as he would like. He’s got every opportunity to be a Premier League player but he needs games and I’m never going to stand in the way of a young player doing that.

MK Dons defender Kyle McFadzean has agreed a new contract with the club.

The former Crawley Town star helped the Dons gain promotion to The Championship last season, and has featured heavily again so far this term.

He has now extended his contract until June 2018.

“This is great news for the football blub both now and for the future.

Kyle is instrumental to the team in terms of his ability and stature.

It’s no surprise that teams have been watching Kyle but by signing a new deal, it shows he’s got belief in the club and the direction we’re heading in.”

On loan MK Dons midfielder Jake Forster-Caskey has returned to his parent club Brighton and Hove Albion.

The England under 21s international made five appearances for the Dons during his time at stadium:mk, but will now compete for his place back at The Championship table-toppers.

“Jake has been fantastic for us but he could only play twice in the next four weeks with a game against Brighton and the international break.

He is another young talented English player that we’ve had the pleasure of helping to develop. I’d like to say thanks to Chris (Hughton) for allowing us the opportunity to work with him.”

Football's international break is well and truly over in the Championship. Ipswich take on Huddersfield, but for MK Dons - they've had more than just European qualifiers to contend with- the small matter of the Rugby World Cup.

Karl Robinson's men play Blackburn tomorrow but have had to share their stadium and training faciities with the likes of the Samoan and Japanese national teams.

The Manager thinks its been great for the town but now its back to business.

As MK Dons welcome Blackburn, here are some head to head statistics:

  • MK Dons have won their only previous encounter with Blackburn, 2-1 in the League Cup in August 2012.
  • Blackburn haven’t registered a victory in their last eight away league matches.
  • Rovers striker Jordan Rhodes has scored four goals in his last four games against the Dons, all of which came during his time with Huddersfield Town.

Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Jake Forster-Caskey has joined MK Dons on a month's loan.

Forster-Caskey is an England under 21s international and has played more than 100 senior games at club level.

The 21-year-old will stay at stadium:mk until October 24.

"To have played for England at all youth levels and plenty of times in the Championship, it shows what a quality player he is.

I saw him when he came on for Dele (Alli) in the U21s recently and he’s someone I’ve got tremendous respect for. Keith Andrews and Matt Upson played with him at Brighton so we weren’t going in blind, plus he’s got Championship experience and came within our wage structure.

Jake will bring tremendous footballing ability to the group – he’s a very talented individual."

– Karl Robinson, MK Dons Manager

Forster-Caskey is the Dons' second signing of the day, with former Cardiff City striker Nicky Maynard also joining the club.

MK Dons have signed former Cardiff City striker Nicky Maynard on a free transfer.

The 28-year-old has been without a club since leaving the Bluebirds in the summer, but has now agreed a deal with the Dons until the end of the season.

Maynard has also played for the likes of West Ham United and Bristol City.

"I’m really pleased we have got him and I think the fans will be pleased that we can get players of his quality through the door - it shows again, as a Football Club, what we can achieve.

With Nicky, we were firm from the word go with what we could offer and initially it was a shock for him and his people. They had to go away and think about it but I’m delighted he’s decided to sign."

– Karl Robinson, MK Dons Manager

Maynard could make his Dons debut in tomorrow's Capital One Cup clash against Premier League side Southampton.

"There was no hesitation.

I really like it here so I’m more than happy to put pen to paper. Hopefully I can keep performing and have a good season in the Championship.

Everyone is ready for the challenge. We’ve got the players here so I can’t see why we can’t do well – we proved that on Saturday.

Games will get tougher because teams now know what we’re about but I’m looking forward to every game.”
