Cole heads to MK Dons

Larnell Cole, who joined Fulham on deadline from Manchester United, has moved to Milton Keynes Dons on loan until the end of the season.

The 20-year-old joined the Craven Cottage outfit late on deadline day, along with United team-mate Ryan Tunnicliffe.

Like Tunnicliffe, Cole has been told by new boss Felix Magath he is surplus to the German's first team plans.

Tunniclife - as Sky Sports revealed earlier this week - has been given permission to discuss loan deals with Ipswich and Wigan.

Cole made his Premier League debut for Fulham after coming on against United in the 2-2 draw at Old Trafford but, since Rene Meulensteen's sacking, has not been involved since.

A statement on the Premier League club's website confirmed the move and added: "The winger will be looking to make an impact at Stadium MK under manager Karl Robinson, with the Dons hoping for a late promotion push in Sky Bet League One."

Robinson said: "I'm really excited by this signing. We've been watching him for a while and he is a high-potential player.

"We had to react quickly to the Samir (Carruthers) injury and he's exactly the type of player I want to bring to the football club - a player of quality, a player of note."
