RYAN Lowe isn’t heading to Tranmere Rovers on loan – but Karl Robinson hasn’t ruled out sending him somewhere else instead.
The 34-year-old joined Dons from Sheffield Wednesday in the summer, but has found it hard to break into the starting 11 at stadium:mk.
Competing alongside Charlie MacDonald and Alan Smith for the right to lead the line up front, Lowe has found the back of the net just once this season – scoring against Carlisle in Dons’ 2-0 victory in September.
And following their 3-2 victory over Yeovil on Saturday, Tranmere manager Ronnie Moore said he had agreed to bring in the striker on loan, before the deal was called off.
Earlier this season, Moore also let slip that Dons had signed Antony Kay – 24 hours before the club had agreed terms with the former Huddersfield defender.
Moore said: “We thought we had Ryan Lowe signed on Friday. It was on, then it was off, then it was on, then it was off again. That’s the type of player we are looking for.”
Robinson said he has had no contact with the Tranmere boss, but didn’t rule out a loan move for Lowe if another club does come in for him.
“He has also said that we’re loaded and spend loads of money – maybe he’s deluded,” said Robinson on Monday afternoon. “I haven’t spoken to Ronnie Moore.
“If I get somebody in, there’s a possibility of him going somewhere, but not to someone who is top of the league.
“Maybe it’s mind games ahead of the game in a month’s time.”
