MK Dons land Chelsea's Cummings

MK Dons boss Roberto Di Matteo has returned to Chelsea to sign defender Shaun Cummings on loan ahead of the new season.

The 19-year-old has signed an initial one-month loan deal at stadium:mk with a view to an extended spell at the League One club.

The youngster began his career as a striker but now operates at either full-back or wide in midfield.

After the recent 1-1 draw with Watford where Cummings made his debut, Di Matteo said: "I think he did well.

"He came in and we had to throw him into the cold water by playing him at left-back, which is not his normal position.

"He's going to come in on loan with us and we'll see how it goes."
