AFC Wimbledon will imminently confirm the signing of Billy Knott on a free transfer. Knott was recently released by Bradford City. The former Chelsea and West Ham youth player joined the Dons on loan from Sunderland in 2012, and was the Dons' Young Player of the Year for the 2011/ 12 season, despite only joining them in January of that year. The Dons will bring him in to provide competition at left midfield and for the central midfield positions.
Wimbledon are also considering making a move for former academy player Luke Gambin, who starred for Barnet at left midfield last season. Sutton-born Gambin recently broke into the Malta national team, and will hope to cement a place in the team as Malta head into a World Cup Qualifying group that includes Scotland and England. Gambin would be brought in to replace Sean Rigg who is on his way back to the South West of England, with Cheltenham and Yeovil both interested in signing the Gloucester-born wide midfielder. However Rigg may drop to the non-league to sign for Forest Green Rovers, where he spent some time as a youth player.
Wimbledon striker Adebayo Azeez will sign a 6 month loan deal with Dagenham and Redbridge in the coming months. Azeez went on loan to the Daggers in 2014, scoring 3 times in 15 appearances. The recently-relegated Daggers host the Dons in a pre-season friendly in late July, and it is likely Azeez will join them soon after that friendly game.
The Dons will hope that some consistent game time will sharpen up the pacy striker who struggled to finish his chances at the back end of the 2015/ 16 season.
AFC Wimbledon will give trial to powerful striker Uche Ikpeazu over pre-season period, as they look to complete their young strike force for next season. The former Watford player gained plenty of experience in League One over the last two seasons with Crewe, Doncaster, Port Vale and Blackpool. Although he is very strong, he admittedly possesses only a slight amount of the strength of departing Adebayo Akinfenwa, but Ikpeazu can provide a lot more speed in attack.
