MK Dons have signed former Man United player Regan Poole, following his release from Old Trafford.
The highly-rated youngster was chased by a number of clubs, however, the pull of League One football tempted the Welshman to Stadium MK.
Poole spent the end of last season at Newport County, helping them to reach the League Two play-off final, which they lost to Tranmere.
Let’s have a look at how Poole will benefit The Dons…
The 20-year-old is predominantly a defender, playing both central and full-back. During his loan spell at Northampton, he also displayed his ability to play in midfield.
Poole is a very well rounded player, tall, strong, athletic and a good footballer. Paul Tisdale will have taken this into consideration when signing the former Man United player, if anyone is injured or suspended, Poole will fit in as their replacement.
Vital EFL experience
As mentioned above, Poole played a significant role in helping The Exiles reach the League Two play-off final, although they lost, Newport County beat Mansfield on penalties in the semi-final. Having a player that has experienced winning playoff matches, is always an added bonus, and I’m sure Poole will be at the heart of their side for the next campaign.
