MK Dons boss makes David Kasumu admission amid Huddersfield Town transfer link

Milton Keynes Dons head coach Liam Manning has admitted he is planning for life with David Kasumu amid reports that Huddersfield Town look set to win the battle for the midfielder’s signature.

The 22 year old was reportedly of interest to Swansea City too, but Wales Online have reported that they have dropped out of the running to reunite him with former MK Dons boss Russell Martin and that the Terriers are his most likely destination.

Town are in the market for new midfielders this summer as Danel Sinani’s loan from Norwich ended while Carel Eiting and Alex Vallejo was released, and Kasumu ticks many of the boxes Town would look for in a box-to-box midfielder.

Kasumu is now out of contract at MK Dons after failing to agree to terms over a new contract, although under transfer regulations a fee would be payable as he is under 23 years old and has been made an offer.

Speaking of Kasumu’s situation, Manning told the MK Citizen: “Nothing has changed - we've made him an offer but we're getting to the stage now where we're planning without him. As it stands, I'm working as if he's not here.

“It's part of football. My priority will always be the team, and what the team needs. We have to have people who are all-in. We can't carry people who are 80 per cent in.

“Through good times or bad, people who are unsure can be harmful. We're creating a group of players who are fully committed to the club.”
