BY RICHARD CAWLEY

AFC Wimbledon have signed Shane McLoughlin from Ipswich Town.

The 21-year-old, who can play in midfield and at full-back, has made the switch on a permanent basis. No contract length has been disclosed.

Dons boss Wally Downes told the club’s website: ““Shane is versatile and very sharp and accurate on the ball.

“He has great energy, a superb attitude, and he fits the age bracket we want. He is the type of player that we want here. Shane has been on my radar for ages.

“A couple of friends I know that used to play for Ipswich told me about him quite a while ago, so I kept my eye on him. We had looked to bring him to India with us when I was out there, but that didn’t happen, and he was doing well at Ipswich.

“I’ve been aware of him for quite a while. He is young and hungry to do well, which is what we want, and he has a great attitude.”
