Career So Far
Thompson arrives at Stadium MK having made 135 appearances so far in his professional career. Eight of those appearances came in Norwich’s successful run to the Championship title last season, while he has also spent five seasons at Swindon Town and spent the first half of this campaign at Shrewsbury Town.
The Wales U21 international came through the ranks at Swindon and made his debut in 2012 in an EFL Cup match against Aston Villa. While with the Robins, he caught the eye of Norwich and made the move in September 2014. However, he was loaned back to Swindon on three separate occasions.
What Was Said
Speaking to the MK Dons website, manager Russell Martin said: “I’m delighted to get this one done. I know Louis has the right character and quality to really strengthen us both on and off the pitch – he is exactly the type of player that we want at the Club.
“He is another player who has shown real desire to come to MK Dons despite interest from other clubs, some in the Championship. A big thank you must also go to Neal Adams, Stuart Webber and Norwich City in allowing both Louis and Carlton Morris to come here.
“If we manage Louis correctly and keep him fit then we have a top player on our hands – a player who earned a move to the Premier League from this level. I’m excited to have him on board.”
