MK Dons have made a late signing after bringing Cardiff City’s Stuart O’Keefe to the club on a season long loan as confirmed by the club website.
The 25-year-old midfielder signed the Bluebirds back in the summer of 2015 but he hasn’t really had a chance to impress in South Wales yet. While he did get a run of games during September and October, that was during the bad run of form which led to previous head coach Paul Trollope being sacked so new manager Neil Warnock had no problem dropping him when he arrived at the club.
And with O’Keefe being unlikely to get back into the first team anytime soon, he needed to go out on loan to get some competitive action. And so now he will be at MK Dons for the rest of the season where he will be hoping to drag them out of the mid-table mediocrity they current find themselves in. And with him having experience of playing in the Premier League and being noted for his energetic style of play, he might be the man who change their season.
Following the signing of O’Keefe, MK Dons head coach Robbie Neilson said: “I’m delighted to get Stuart in. He’ll bring energy to the team and good experience for someone still relatively young.
“He’s played at a higher level and will certainly bolster our options in the middle of the park.”
O’Keefe could make his début for MK Dons when they play Bolton Wanderers at the weekend.
