Joe Walsh has joined League One rivals MK Dons this afternoon, on loan from struggling Crawley Town.
The deal for the 22-year-old runs until the end of the season, with a view to a permanent move come the end of the season.
However, Walsh is out of contract at the end of the season so MK Dons would be able to pick him up for free if he impresses for the a side who still have a huge part to play in the League One promotion race.
"I was made up when I found out we could get it done," Dons boss Kark Robinson told the club's website.
"Since Shaun Williams [left to join Millwall] we haven't had a left-footed defender and he will provide great cover at both left-back and in the centre."
The left-back has been ever present this year for Crawley, making 32 appearances this season and 110 appearances since 2012. Walsh was called up to the Wales national squad in October, which was a proud moment for the former Swansea trainee.
He will now be looking to keep his place in the national squad and push on with impressive performances for MK Dons.
Walsh will be available for Robinson for the first time against Chesterfield tomorrow evening (Tuesday), as they look to fight off the pressure from in-form Preston North End in the fight for automatic promotion.
