Tottenham new boy reveals what he wants to do before leaving loan club

Dele Alli is keen to see MK Dons win promotion to the Championship this season.

The 18-year-old midfielder is fit for match action again, and he has told the official MK Dons website that he wants to help the team win promotion before leaving.

“Obviously being from MK, I’d love to be a part of getting this team promoted,” the youngster said. “We’ve got a good team and I believe this year could be the one for us. We’re just taking each game as it comes, as we have done all season.”

Alli signed for Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur in January, but returned on loan to his former club until the end of the campaign.

Considered one of the brightest young English prospects, the 18-year-old midfielder has 14 goals in 36 games this season, and will play a key role for the Dons as they look to clinch promotion to the Championship.

Unfortunately, he was ruled out of action for six weeks two months ago, and he has failed to aid the club as they struggled with a poor run in form. They are now five points off Preston in the second automatic promotion place, and one would guess that they will have to settle for the play-offs.

However, the young midfielder is set to be back in action this weekend, as the Dons travel to Swindon Town. A victory for Alli’s teammates will see them overtake Swindon into third place, and may open up the chances of securing that elusive automatic place.

It appears as if Alli will be linking up with Spurs in the summer, and if he really wants to see the Dons promoted before joining his new teammates in North London, he will have to be at top form for the remaining weeks of the season.
