Rasulo commits to Dons

MK Dons teenager Giorgio Rasulo has signed his first professional contract with the club.

The 17-year-old striker will stay at stadium:mk until at least the end of the 2015/16 season, with the option of a further year.

"I'm a massive advocate of bringing these young players through and he is a massive part of what I'm trying to do at the football club," Dons boss Karl Robinson told the club's official website.

"He's an exceptionally-talented kid, a kid who I hope has a bright future here before he goes off to do what he's got to do elsewhere.

"I keep saying to all the younger players 'help get this club up as it will develop your careers too'.

"He's already shown tremendous quality at the back end of the season and there's only more to come from Giorgio, which will only benefit the football club."

England Under-17s international Rasulo made his debut for the club in November 2011 as a second-half substitute in the 6-1 FA Cup win against Cambridge City. He made his league debut in the win at Stevenage in April last year.
