Clinton Morrison would 'love' MK Dons stay

Sheffield Wednesday striker Clinton Morrison has said he is eager to make his one-month loan spell at Milton Keynes Dons a permanent deal.

The 32-year-old played the final 30 minutes of the Dons' 0-0 draw at Bury following his last-minute move.

"I'd love it to be longer, I'd love it to be until January, I'd love it to be permanently," he told BBC Three Counties Radio.

"But it's out of my hands, that's between the two clubs to sort out."

The Republic of Ireland international had been left out of Gary Megson's side to face Yeovil last week after the arrival of David McGoldrick on loan from Nottingham Forest.

"I was packing my bag to go away with the family for the weekend and then all of a sudden I got the phone call," he said.

"The manager [at Sheffield Wednesday] pulled me in and said 'I've brought in another striker, I want you to go out and you can train with another club if you like'.

"I'm still a Wednesday player but I'm here to play well with Milton Keynes and hopefully make my stay longer."

Meanwhile, Charlie MacDonald, the man Morrison was brought in to cover, has undergone a scan to assess the extent of a thigh injury.

"We'll be sitting down with the specialists on Tuesday to see how long it's going to be," boss Karl Robinson said.

MacDonald, a signing from Brentford in late August, scored in his first three Dons outings, but has not featured since hobbling off against Morrison's parent side two weeks ago.
