Promising youngster Ryan Kent has signed on a season long loan with Championship club MK Dons, their club’s official Twitter account has confirmed.
The 18-year-old shone during a cameo appearance for the first-team in a friendly versus Swindon before the start of the campaign, and after regularly impressing for the Under-21s, management felt it was time for him to test his mettle elsewhere.

The teenager prides himself on his acceleration, dribbling and ability to shoot from range.
He’s comfortable on the right or left, and has been used centrally as well – bagging two in two games for England Under-18s so far.
Kent joins his fellow wing flyer Sheyi Ojo on loan in the Championship, with his Under-21 team-mate from last term spending the season with Wolves.
Both will be hoping to impress in a similar manner to Jordon Ibe, who did so well with Derby in 2014/15 that Brendan Rodgers recalled him to Liverpool – and he’s since established himself as a vital member of the first-team squad.
Breaking through at Liverpool is going to be very hard for anybody, regardless of talent, but Rodgers has shown time and time again that if a player is good enough, he’s old enough.
