West Ham midfielder joins MK Dons on loan

Last updated : 20 August 2015 By DSG

​​The son of former Chelsea midfielder Gus Poyet has made only three Premier League appearances for West Ham

However, he played five times in the Europa League for the Hammers this season.

​​Poyet who joined from Charlton Athletic last summer was on loan to Huddersfield Town last season but he made only 2 appearances for them before returning to West Ham at the end of his loan.

​The 20-year-old Uruguayan told ​Mk Dons' official website:

​"It's great to be here

I first heard about the move a couple of days ago and it was an exciting option for me

I'm pleased it's been able to go through.

​"I've had a good pre-season and I'm feeling fit

I want to play games and I'm grateful to the club for giving me an opportunity to come and do that I'm raring to go now and can't wait for the season ahead."

​​Manager Karl Robinson added: “Diego is top-drawer and he’s going to make a big difference to this team

He'll give us tremendous energy in the middle of the park and heÂ’s somebody who knows this division having done so well with Charlton two years ago."

​​“I’m really looking forward to this opportunity of working with him.”

​​West Ham have retained the option of recalling the Uruguay U20 international who also played for England at U-16 and U-17.
