The defender joins MK Dons from League Two leaders Cambridge United

Harry Darling appears to fit the mould as he arrives at MK Dons after signing from Cambridge United.

Despite being just 21-years-old, Darling has made 70 appearances for the U's in the last three seasons, mixing youth and relative experience already for the centre back.

His 20 games this season have helped Cambridge to hit top spot in League Two, playing alongside Dons loanee Hiram Boateng.

Darling has been a part of the Cambridge United fold since 2015, and made his debut as a 17-year-old in the EFL Trophy against Scunthorpe United in November 2016.

After that, he was sent on loan to non-league sides Bishops Stortford, Hampton & Richmond and Royston in 2017/18, but also made five outings for Cambridge during the campaign.

He became a more familiar face in the United line-up for the following season, before establishing himself in the subsequent two years.
