'No contact' from Tottenham over Dele Alli's recent injury, MK Dons boss

MK Dons

Karl Robinson says that Spurs trust the League One side over the treatment of the midfielder.

Tottenham Hotspur snapped up talented midfielder Dele Alli from Milton Keynes Dons. Spurs fended off fierce competition to sign the player for a fee reported by the BBC to have been in the £5 million region. They then sent him back on loan to the Stadium:MK until the end of the current campaign.

The teenager has been impressive this term as he continues his development, scoring 14 goals in 38 appearances.

He has recently returned from a two month injury absence, featuring against Swindon and Scunthorpe. that injury might have worried Tottenham but according to MK Dons boss they trust the League One club with the welfare of the teenager.

He told MK Web yesterday that there had been no contact from the parent club about the midfield dynamo:

"I've not really had any contact from Spurs.

"They trust us with his development and we've done a wonderful job so far with him.

"They want us to keep doing what we're doing and keep developing him and playing him, and when it comes to the summer he will be handed over to them."

They certainly have done a good job with the player. He has played 80 games and scored 22 goals for the club since making his debut in 2012 as a 16-year-old and his impressive form has seen him earn this move to Tottenham.

The hope now will be that his ankle problem does not reoccur and that he can arrive at Spurs fully-fit in the summer, as he attempts to break through to the first-team at White Hart Lane.
