MK Dons have re-signed QPR winger Angelo Balanta on a five-month loan.

The 21-year-old spent the whole of last season with the Dons, but had his campaign disrupted by an ankle injury.

Despite spending four months on the sidelines, the Colombian-born wideman featured 25 times for Karl Robinson's side, scoring seven goals.

"Last year Angelo showed he is an incredibly talented footballer and to have him back is fantastic news," Robinson told the club websiteexternal-link.

"He knows he has to deliver week-in, week-out and continue to develop his own game.

"I have said all summer I wanted a player to come in who would excite the fans, play our style of football and add something special to the team and in Angelo I know we have that."

Balanta, who has made 25 league appearances for QPR, signed a two-year contract extension last year, keeping him at Loftus Road until 2012.
