Matthew Sorinola has joined Swansea City, with the wing-back becoming the latest former MK Dons player to join the South Wales club.

The 21-year-old has joined Swansea on a season long loan from Belgian side Royale Union Saint-Gilloise, who he joined after leaving MK Dons in 2021.

Sorinola has been bought to the South Wales club to play for Russell Martin, who Sorinola played for at MK Dons. 

He made 43 appearances in all competitions in the 2020/21 season, having joined the Dons’ academy in 2017 and made his first 3 senior MK Dons appearances in the Papa John’s Trophy the previous season.

Last season, Sorinola made 16 appearances in all competitions for Royale Union Saint-Gilloise in the Belgian top flight as they finished 2nd in their first top flight season since 1973.

He is the second player with MK Dons connections to sign for Swansea in the summer of 2022, following the arrival of Harry Darling direct to Swansea from Milton Keynes earlier this month. The Swans previously signed Andy Fisher from the Dons in January.

Martin told the Swansea website of his delight to bring him to the club.

He said, “Matty is a brilliant player and a brilliant young man. He understands what we want and has been a part of that process and done incredibly well in it.

“He has not played as much as he wanted to last season, but once he knew we were interested he was only going to come here, even though there was a lot of interest elsewhere from the division we are in. That was down to the strength of the relationships he has with the coaching staff, and guys like Harry and Fish. It put us in good shape to get him.

“I have no doubt we will get an even better version of him than we had at MK, and it is great we have got the deal done so early so he can have these five weeks to get used to the boys and the place.”
