Karl Robinson would welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Milton Keynes, should they decide to use stadium:mk while their new ground is built.

Spurs revealed last month that they’d be facing a year of ground sharing in the 2017-18 season, and relocating north to Milton Keynes was one of the options on the table.

But while the touted move is still three years up the road, Dons boss Robinson admits he can’t see any negatives for either the club nor Milton Keynes in hosting the Premier League side for a season.

“It’s great that we’re being mentioned positively in the public domain,” said Robinson. “I’d be happy. This place was built for the right reasons, despite all the negatives in the last 10 years.

“I don’t speak to the chairman about these things, it’s a board level thing. From an outsider’s perspective, I don’t see why it’d be a negative.

“I’m more concerned about what it can bring to Milton Keynes.

“Purely and simply for economic reasons in Milton Keynes, people doing more here. It won’t just be the city people drive past at junction 14 with all the roundabouts.

“You’ll always get criticism off the back of big decisions. But it’s a few years off, and you never know what is around the corner in football.”
