MK Dons boss Karl Robinson proud of Tottenham Hotspur-bound Dele Alli

3 February 2015

Dele Alli has completed a move from Milton Keynes Dons to Tottenham Hotspur, but he will remain on loan at stadiummk for the rest of the season.

The 18-year-old, who won August’s Football League Young Player of the Month, has penned a five-and-a-half year contract with Spurs, who have paid an undisclosed fee for his services.

Alli has been with the Dons since the age of 10 and, after progressing through the ranks, he made his senior debut in November 2012 as a 16-year-old.

So far this season, the youngster is the highest-scoring Football League midfielder, with 12 goals to his name.

Dons boss Robinson told the club’s official website: “We are immensely proud of Dele.

“He is one of many young and talented players to have progressed through the youth system here, which proves that the chairman’s vision of providing local children with a step into professional football is paying off.

“Over the past three years we have handed first-team debuts to Milton Keynes-based players such as George Williams and Brendan Galloway, who are both now playing at a higher level, as well as help the likes of Liverpool’s Sheyi Ojo earn international recognition - Dele is the latest to follow in that path.

“We are delighted to have the opportunity to re-sign Dele and keep him with us for the rest of the season. Hopefully both he and us can share some more moments that will last a lifetime, before he moves on.”
