OWLS striker Clinton Morrison has joined MK Dons on loan after all and will be with them for a month.

A deal fell through last week because Wednesday judged that Dons’ suggested contribution towards the player’s wages was too low.

Swindon this week came in with an offer that was acceptable to Wednesday, but Morrison rejected the move into League Two.

Now it appears that MK Dons have come in with a fresh bid, and the League One outfit have signed the striker until October 22.

“As soon as I knew MK Dons were interested in me, I wanted to join,” said Morrison.

“MK Dons are the best passing side in the division.

“I don’t feel I need to prove a point, I’m just here to play my football.

“I want to enjoy myself and be happy and hopefully I can help with MK Dons’ ambitions of promotion.”

Dons boss Karl Robinson said: “Clinton is someone I respect and have liked for a long time. Whenever we have played against Sheffield Wednesday in the past we have done a lot of work to stop him playing. which just proves what a top player he is.

“I love his character, his desire and the fact that he is a winner. I think the fans will take to him and make him feel at home at Stadium MK.”

Meanwhile, Owls goalkeeping coach Andy Rhodes has been charged by the FA with improper conduct at Yeovil last Saturday.

Wednesday were angered over Yeovil’s first goal where possession was supposed to be returned to be them after a stoppage but Glovers player Kieran Agard broke through to score..
