Doncaster Rovers: Jordan Houghton joins MK Dons on two-year-deal
Former Doncaster Rovers loanee Jordan Houghton has joined League Two side MK Dons following his release from Chelsea.
The 22-year-old midfielder has penned a two-year deal with the Dons.
Houghton told iFollow MK Dons: “I’m very happy to be here.
“I had a long chat with the manager a couple of days ago - we sat down for a good couple of hours and I got a good feel for him and the place.
“Before I spoke to him I was excited over the prospect of playing here but when I sat down and spoke with him it ticked another box for me.”
Houghton was a key figure in Doncaster’s promotion from League Two in 2017 and made another 40 appearances on loan for Rovers last term.
Rovers agreed a deal with Chelsea to sign Houghton permanently in January but the player opted to keep his options open.
Dons boss Paul Tisdale said: “Jordan is a young and talented player and he has had a good experience already.
“We hope that he will join us and be a part of the Club’s development and progress over the next two or three years. He’s certainly got the potential to go with us on our journey.”
