OWLS: Dons swoop for Tavernier

Have your say

MK DONS completed a surprise beat-the-deadline signing of former Wednesday loan star James Tavernier but he was ineligible to face the Owls.

Dons have taken Newcastle right back Tavernier on loan for the rest of the season after Adam Smith was unexpectedly recalled by Spurs and joined Leeds.

Former Owls loan winger Ben Marshall has completed a move to Leicester as expected.

Stoke are believed to be receiving a fee of £750,000 plus a possible further £250,000 linked to appearances and Leicester winning promotion in his time with them.

Marshall has signed a three-year contract.
