MK Dons have signed Cambridge defender Harry Darling for an undisclosed fee.

Darling has played 20 times this season for the U’s, who are top of the Sky Bet League Two table.

The 21-year-old told the Dons’ website: “This is a great club and I’m excited to get going.

“I see myself as a ball-playing centre-back, but one who prides himself on keeping clean sheets too.

“I’m an ambitious person and I think this club suits me in that aspect. I just can’t wait to meet my teammates and get started.”

Darling is set to be available for his new club’s next fixture against Charlton on Tuesday.

Manager Russell Martin said: “Harry is a player we have been keeping tabs on for some time.

“We’ve watched a lot of him, particularly in the last few months and he’s been our number one target at this position.

“We’ve been able to go and get one of the best central defenders in League Two and one of the best young talents at this level. We’re delighted to get it over the line.”
