League One side MK Dons have signed former Chelsea midfielder Josh McEachran on a short-term deal.

The 28-year-old had been a free agent since leaving Birmingham in January, with injury having blighted his time at St Andrew’s.

McEachran is a Chelsea academy graduate and was highly rated as a youngster.

He told MK Dons’ official website: “I’m thankful for the opportunity that the gaffer has given me and I just can’t wait to get started.

“I came here to keep fit but everyone has been fantastic with me. The way the Gaffer wants to play is suited to me. I like to get on the ball as much as possible and dictate play so it felt like a perfect fit.

“I have been out for a little while now but this is the fittest and strongest I’ve felt for a long time. Hopefully I can get back to playing regular football and help the team out.”
