"It was one of the most difficult hours I've had as a manager. The kid means so much to me as a person and I rate him so highly as a footballer.

I went home and cried to myself because I couldn't handle it.

I wish him all the luck in the world. I promised him that I will be at his first game back - I'm counting down the days."

MK Dons have signed Crawley Town captain Joe Walsh on loan until the end of the season, with a view to a permanent deal in the summer.

The 22-year-old defender has been linked with a number of clubs, but the Dons have won the race for his signature.

Walsh could make his debut in tomorrow's clash with Chesterfield at stadium:mk.

“We’ve known about Joe for a while and I was made up when I found out we could get it done. He’s out of contract in the summer but we’ve been given the chance to get him on loan immediately.

Since Shaun Williams we haven’t had a left-footed defender and he will provide great cover at both left-back and in the centre.

He’s only 22 years of age, he trains with the Welsh national team and he’s been in the squad a few times. He also won Young Player of the Year at Crawley Town twice in a row and the main Player of the Year award last season.”

Former Wimbledon striker John Fashanu says that he will attempt to persuade MK Dons star Dele Alli to play for Nigeria instead of England.

Alli recently completed a dream switch to Tottenham Hotspur, but was immediately loaned back to the Dons for the rest of the season.

Although Alli has played for England junior teams, the 18-year-old can still change international allegiance, and Fashanu hopes that he will choose the African nation over the Three Lions.

"I will be speaking to some people at MK Dons to help patch me through to Alli. We can't afford to lose such a talented kid to England, it's better we put up a fight than to let him go, I will do my best to persuade him to switch allegiance.

I sincerely believe in years to come he will be a top prospect and Nigeria, from what I will tell him, will be his best bet at being a global international star."

MK Dons manager Karl Robinson has admitted that Premier League side Newcastle United are interested in signing highly-rated midfielder Dele Alli.

The 18-year-old has attracted considerable interest from the top flight, but some reports have suggested that Newcastle could be about to jump to the front of the queue by tabling a £9million bid.

Robinson says that no official offer has been submitted yet however.

“There’s been a lot of talk over Dele and Newcastle United and certain clubs.

I think it’s a bit more than paper talk but there’s nothing that we’ve heard yet.”
