    According to reports, Milton Keynes Dons could be set to sign striker Max Watters on loan.

    Pete O'Rourke has reported on social media this morning that the Dons are poised to loan the Cardiff City man - working towards filling the gaps left by key departures this summer.

    Watters signed for Cardiff off the back of an impressive run of form for League Two club Crawley Town last season, where he registered 13 goals in 15 league appearances.

    There was plenty of interest in the player from many League One clubs, but the lure of the Championship secured his services for the Bluebirds.

    He made just three appearances after the move and, at 22 years old, looks set to earn regular first-team football in a loan move to the third tier.

    For the Dons, it would give them another promising young player to work with alongside Charlie Brown and would be the first step towards addressing the team's biggest weakness at this stage of the off-season.

    Assistant manager Luke Williams spoke to the media earlier this week, mentioning the club is involved in a number of negotiations with clubs and players.

    This latest report could very well be the first of many negotiations the Dons are potentially close to finalising, but only official confirmation from the club will prove its validity.
