MK Dons have signed midfielder Louis Thompson on loan from Norwich City.

The 25-year-old has signed a deal until the end of the current season. He is the third arrival at stadium mk in the current window, following the arrival of Carlton Morris and Ben Gladwin.

Thompson began his career at Swindon, like his older brother Nathan, who now plays for Peterborough United. The midfielder made over 100 appearances for the Robins.

He had moved to Norwich in 2014 but had 3 loan spells with the Wiltshire side, up until 2016. Thompson also spent the first half of the current season on loan with the Dons’ fellow League One side Shrewsbury Town.

Thompson told the Dons’ iFollow of his delight to make the move. He also voiced praise for the Dons manager Russell Martin, who he played alongside at Carrow Road.

He said, “The team are playing a great brand of football and I wanted to get down here and be a part of that. Hopefully I can take to it like a duck to water and me and the team can kick on.

“I always knew Russ would go into coaching – it’s a natural progression for him. He’s a born leader and he was always very vocal and expressive as my captain and he always had a knack for saying the right things.

“I’m a combative player who likes to get forward as well as read the game well defensively. I want to chip in at both ends of the pitch – hopefully I can do that and help the team pick up the points needed to climb the table.”
