Manchester City and Liverpool fans are left stunned in the Football Transfer Tavern after their target has opted to pen a new at League One MK Dons!
According to talkSPORT, Dele Alli has ended speculation of him leaving for the big time after signing a new three-year deal at the Stadium:MK side.
The 18-year-old was influential in the Dons’ famous 4-0 thrashing of Manchester United in the Capital One Cup earlier this season and has since been linked with numerous Premier League clubs.
However, the academy graduate is admirably showing great loyalty at wanting to stay in Milton Keynes and has signed his new deal until June 2017.
The midfielder has been a key player and has netted three times in nine appearances.
Dons boss Karl Robinson said: “Dele is an exceptionally gifted player and it was only right that we rewarded him for a fantastic 12 months with this new deal.
“Dele will continue to be linked with some of the world’s biggest clubs and it’s inevitable that there will be a time when we will have to let him go, whether that be in January, next summer or whenever.”
