MK Dons have signed Devante Cole on loan from Manchester City until the end of the season.

Cole, the 19-year-old son of former Manchester United striker Andy, spent the first half of the season on loan at Barnsley.

During his time with the Tykes, Cole played 23 times, scoring seven goals, including one against Dons in their 5-3 victory at Oakwell back in September.

Karl Robinson said: “Devante is a player I’ve wanted to bring to the club for a long time. He’s an exciting youngster who can play either on the wing or up-front, he’s quick and he knows how to score goals.

“He’s held in high regard by Manchester City and the FA, having represented England at all levels from Under-16s to Under-19s, and I can’t wait to work with him for the remainder of the season.”
