Chelsea youngster Ike Ugbo has joined MK Dons till the end of the season, the League One club confirmed.
The 19-year-old signed a contract at the Blues in the summer and initially got loaned out to Championship team Barnsley.
Ugbo recently struggled for consistent game time as he scored just one goal for the Tykes. However, he did feature in 18 matches for Barnsley during his time there.
Hopefully, this move will see him play more frequently in a lower divsion as MK Dons hope to escape relegation to League Two.
