MK Dons boss Karl Robinson lines up three deals

Robinson's side start their League One campaign at home to Hartlepool

MK Dons boss Karl Robinson has set about adding three more names to his squad for the League One campaign.

Robinson has already made four acquisitions this summer to the side that reached last season's play-offs.

"I'm going to bring in three players hopefully over the next two weeks," he told BBC Three Counties Radio.

"I am working hard behind the scenes and hopefully we can pull those deals off, but with the squad of players we've got we'll be very strong."

The Dons manager was expecting to be looking for a new right-back, with Mathias Doumbe having an injury assessed and no recognised replacement on the books.

But youth product Adam Chicksen, usually a left-back, filled the void admirably in a friendly against Tottenham on Tuesday.

"Adam's done exceptionally well against Andros Townsend, who's a top Championship, or even Premier League player," Robinson said of the 19-year-old after the game.

"He's proved he can hold his own against the best, maybe my headache has been solved for the short-term.

"All he can do now is get better and stronger and things look very rosy."

Chicksen, who signed a two-year deal last summer, has made 24 first-team appearances - 14 as a substitute.
