Samir Carruthers Midfielder 2014 -17


Samir was born in Islington, London, on 4 April 1993. He was signed by Cambridge United's under-10 side. He trained frequently with Manchester United, but when Cambridge United abandoned their youth team set-up he signed for Arsenal, representing them at under-18 level and captained the club's under-16 side.

 In 2009 he moved to Aston Villa, where he was a regular in the youth team and made three first-team appearances before being sent on loan to MK Dons in August 2013.

On 6 August 2014 he signed for the Dons on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee. He scored his first goal of the season on 13 September in a 5–3 away win against Barnsley. On 25 April 2015 he scored a second goal, opening a 3–2 win at Rochdale. Eight days later the team earned promotion to the Championship with a 5–1 home win over Yeovil Town on the final day, with Samir setting up the first goal from Carl Baker.

Samir is of Irish, Italian and Moroccan descent and is eligible to play for Italy, Morocco, England and Ireland, the country of his grandparents, and chose the latter.


He signed for Sheffield United in January 2017 for a sum believed to be in the region of £500,000 after making 94 appearances for the Dons and netting six goals.
