One in, one out at MK Dons

League Two promotion hopefuls MK Dons look likely to lose Swedish striker Osman Sow, but replace him with a forward from a Premier League side.

28-year old Sow looks set to re-join Heart of Midlothian on loan after little over a season in Milton Keynes. He’s played 19 times for MK Dons in the league, scoring twice. Whilst playing north of the border he scored 23 goals in 52 games for Hearts before leaving for China in February 2016.

To offset that loss, Paul Tisdale is hoping to secure the services of Rhys Healy from Cardiff City. His move has been revealed by manager Neil Warnock, who told Inside Wales Sport; “We want to get Rhys (Healey) some games but it’s about picking the right one. We think we have picked the right one, I believe he is signing for MK Dons today.”

“He had a few division one clubs, but I don’t want him to go somewhere and not play. You can’t make managers play him, but I think Paul Tisdale is the ideal man to look after your lads.”

Healy has appeared 11 times for Cardiff, both in the top flight and the Championship and will join the Dons ahead of the big clash with Exeter City tomorrow.

Our View

It looks like one flop out and one prospect in. Shrewd business indeed by Paul Tisdale, a man who is hoping to prove his talents extend beyond working on a budget at Exeter.

Healy could be a master stroke, he’s a lively young lad who is highly thought of at Cardiff. If they get him firing then Osman Sow’s departure won’t be upsetting many fans. With two goals in a season, it probably won’t anyway.
