George Williams has been loaned to MK Dons through the end of the season, according to Fulham officials. He is no stranger to the League One club having gone through their youth system and making his senior debut with them back in 2011. The Dons are currently third in the table and are only one point out of an automatic promotion spot, meaning there is still much to play for.
The move came as somewhat of a surprise given the liking that manager Kit Symons has show George this season. Williams has featured for the the club 16 times this season, 15 of which were given since the appointment of Symons. Recently, the young Welsh international had been seeing more playing time with the under-21s, therefore giving him first team football elsewhere became a plausible idea. In this case he will most likely see much more playing time with the League One outfit.
Other moves happening on Monday saw fullback Elsad Zverotic leave the club by mutual consent. The Montenegrin made 21 appearances for the club since joining in September of 2013, but never was able to cement himself in the squad. Midfielder Dino Fazlic, who failed to appear for Fulham since his arrival at the beginning of this season, also is leaving the club and has chosen to join the Croatian side NK Zadar on a permanent transfer.
There has been some speculation that these moves may signify Fulham making room for several loan players to bring in, and I must admit I'm all for that. We all are aware of the recent dip in form, and a few new players to inject life into the side is something I'm definitely open to. In the meantime, hopefully George Williams will become an integral part of MK Dons promotion push and get a lot of experience under his belt in the process.
