West Ham United midfielder Conor Coventry is said to be in advanced talks with MK Dons over a loan move, as per a recent report by Football Insider.
The 21-year-old recently made an early return to the London Stadium after being recalled early from his loan spell with Peterborough United and now appears set to complete another temporary move away from the East London club.
Milton Keynes are said to have moved quickly in order to secure a deal, with the Sky Bet League One outfit firming up their interest after they learnt of Coventry’s availability.
Negotiations between all the parties involved are said to be progressing well, with it being hoped that an agreement can be reached later this week.
Coventry struggled for game time towards his loan spell with Peterborough and will no doubt hope that he will become a regualr starter at Stadium MK if he completes the proposed move to Buckinghamshire.

This would be the midfielder’s third loan spell away from the Hammers, having previously also spent time at Lincoln City.
This is a good signing on paper for MK, who will be acquiring a player that has good experience at various levels of the Football League.
At the age of 21, Coventry should also settle in well to what is an already young squad at his potential new club.
Add to the fact that he is a player who has all the right skills to succeed under Liam Manning and it is fair to say that this move ticks all the boxes for the League One club.
If he performs well enough between now and the end of the season, it wouldn’t be s surprise if MK looked to make the move permanent further down then line, with then player’s long term future somewhat unclear at West Ham.
