“Shame we won’t get to keep him” – MK Dons captain praises Ethan Laird

MK Dons captain Dean Lewington has been impressed by Manchester United loanee Ethan Laird.

He spoke to MK Citizen about Laird, saying: “It’s a different dynamic on the right. It’s a bit more direct with Ethan, using his raw pace. I’m still getting used to playing with him but it’s working pretty well.

“He just needed a bit of encouragement and the freedom to express himself. I try and do as much of his defensive duties as I can to help him express himself.

“He’s really improved since he first came here, he’s come on leaps and bounds.

“It’s just a shame we won’t get to keep him.”
