MK Dons have completed the signing of  Samir Carruthers from Aston Villa for an undisclosed fee.

The club’s twitter announced the news earlier today.

The club’s official website reports that the 21-year-old signs a three-year-deal and signs on after spending last season on loan at the Stadium MK, playing 23 times scoring twice but his time at the club was cut short after suffering a posterior cruciate ligament. 

And although he suffered a further injury during pre-season with Villa, the player told the MK Don’s website he was looking forward to the challenge.

“It’s exciting and it’s what I wanted,” he told MK Dons Player. “Obviously I know the Club from before, I’m pleased to be back and I can’t wait to get going again. It’s like coming home.”

He added: “The knee injury was hard at the time and no player wants to go through that, but I’ve come back fine and my knee is healthy.

“Now I need to work hard with Si (Simon Crampton) to recover from this thigh problem, get myself fit and into the manager’s thinking for selection.

MK Dons start their season at home to Gillingham this Saturday.
