- His transfer to Dons is subject to clearance from relevant governing bodies
Chelsea striker Ike Ugbo has completed a loan move to MK Dons, and the 19-year-old Englishman will be there for the rest of the season.
Ike Agbo was said to have completed his move to the League one club on January 4, but his transfer is subject to clearance from the relevant governing bodies.
He has however expressed happiness following his move from Chelsea to MK Dons.
Speaking to MK Dons' official website, Ugbo said: "I’m delighted to join such a great club and I can’t wait to get started.
"I’ve settled in well today and the players made me feel comfortable and at home.
"The players MK Dons have helped develop over the years like Dele Alli and Benik Afobe inspired me to come here,'' Ugbo said.
Ugbo is rated as one of the top prospects at Chelsea after starring for their youth sides over the last couple of years.
His goals helped them to capture several trophies including the Uefa Youth League, FA Youth Cup and the U18s Premier League.
Should his clearance come through in time then he could be eligible to make his debut for the Dons in their FA Cup third round tie at QPR on Saturday, January 6.
