Milton Keynes Dons manager Roberto Di Matteo has raided his former club Chelsea to sign defender Shaun Cummings on loan.
Di Matteo has landed the 19-year-old on an initial one-month deal as he prepares for the new season in League One and he also has the option to extend the deal.
Cummings is capable of operating at either full-back or wide in midfield and Di Matteo was impressed by the youngster's debut in the recent 1-1 draw with Watford.
"I think he did well," said Di Matteo.
"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."
