Carruthers completes loan move to League One side MK Dons

Samir Carruthers has joined League One outfit MK Dons on a youth loan until January.

Carruthers, who signed a new two-year contract at Villa this summer, will get the chance to further his football education at the Stadium MK.

The Republic of Ireland U21 international has made three Barclays Premier League appearances - all coming as a substitute during the 2011-12 campaign.

Since joining Villa from Arsenal as a schoolboy, midfielder Carruthers has been a standout performer for the club's reserves, U21 and youth sides.

He was part of the team that reached the FA Youth Cup final in 2009-10 and helped the reserves win the Barclays Premier Reserve League South title in 2011-12.

Last term, the 20-year-old captained Villa to a memorable triumph in the NextGen Series European competition.

Carruthers' loan move comes 24 hours after fellow academy starlet Graham Burke made a temporary switch to Shrewsbury Town.
