MK Dons midfielder Luke Howell is set to become Steve Tilson`s first signing as Lincoln manager after agreeing a one-month loan deal.
The 23-year-old, who can also play at right-back, has found first-team opportunities with the Dons limited this season.
Howell trained with his new team-mates for the first time on Tuesday.
"Luke has got good technical ability and has a good engine," said Lincoln assistant manager Paul Brush.
"He played around 30 games for MK Dons last season but hasn't been involved under the new manager this season. He wants to come here and he needs games."
