    Having previously trained with the club, Milton Keynes Dons look set to bring goalkeeper Franco Ravizzoli to the club on a permanent deal.

    The 23-year-old Argentinian goalkeeper has most recently plied his trade with National League South side Eastbourne Borough, where he established himself as the team's first-choice between the sticks during the 2019/20 season.

    With non-league football seriously affected by the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, Ravizzoli found himself linking up with the Dons as third-choice cover during Laurie Walker's successful loan spell with League Two club Oldham Athletic.

    With former starter Lee Nicholls joining Huddersfield Town on a free transfer and the future of Walker currently unclear, the need for another goalkeeper behind incumbent Andrew Fisher is obvious.

    While no official comment or announcement has been made by the Dons themselves, Eastbourne have announced Ravizzoli's departure from the club, after making 33 appearances during two shortened seasons.

    In the club's announcement on their official website, first-team manager Danny Bloor spoke highly of the stopper.

    He commented: "Obviously it's been a pleasure having Franco at our football club."

    "Although we are sorry to see him go, we all acknowledge that he was a professional goalkeeper in the making."

    He added: "He joined us and quickly developed into, in my opinion, the best goalkeeper in the league."
