Conor Coventry says he's hoping to make a "positive impact" at MK Dons.

The Republic of Ireland U21 captain has joined the League One promotion hopefuls on loan from West Ham.

Coventry spent the first half of this season with Peterborough United, starting only four League One games before being recalled by the Hammers.

With the Dons, he's reunited with former West Ham U23 manager Liam Manning, who's now head coach at Stadium MK.

“I’m delighted to be here,” Coventry said upon his arrival, “This is a club moving in a really good direction and hopefully I can help make a positive impact towards that.

“I know how the team plays and it’s something that suits me. I am a player who will always give my all and look to get on the ball, dictate play and help keep possession.

“I obviously know the manager from his time at West Ham. He is someone I trust and who really helped my development so I am looking forward to working with him again and hopefully I can repay his and the Club’s faith with my performances.”

Sporting director Liam Sweeting said Coventry's arrival came at the third time of asking for the Dons, with Manning adding, "Conor is somebody I know well from our time together at West Ham United.

“He is a fantastic character, first and foremost, as well as a hard-working and talented young player who his comfortable on the ball and suited to what we are trying to do here at MK Dons.

"He will certainly bolster our squad and add to the quality that we have here.”
