MK Dons have signed defender Warren O’Hora on a permanent basis from Brighton after his previous loan deal.

21-year-old Irish defender O’Hora had initially signed a season long loan with the League One side, but he has now made a permanent move to stadium mk, signing a contract of undisclosed length at the club.

The defender played 17 times for MK Dons in all competitions during his loan period at the club.

He told the official MK Dons website of his delight to confirm that he will be staying in Milton Keynes.

He said, “I’m over the moon. I’ve enjoyed my time with the Club ever since I arrived back in pre-season, so I’m happy to be here on a permanent basis.

“I’m certainly enjoying my football here and hopefully that’s showing on the pitch. Obviously now I want to get back on the pitch after my little injury setback.

“Every footballer wants to keep improving and developing, and I think MK Dons is the best place for me to do that. It’s a big ambition of mine to keep moving forward and I know I can do that with this Club – I’m really excited for the future.”
