AFC Wimbledon hope to get a deal done with Burton Albion before the weekend, to sign utility player Darius Charles. It is expected that they would use Charles as a centre back, having had young centre half Ryan Sweeney red carded on Saturday, and long term injuries to all their other central defensive players limiting their options in that position. Charles signed for Burton Albion in the summer, but a succession of injuries have prevented him making his league debut for the Brewers. Burton boss Nigel Clough recently said that he expected Charles to play a role in Burton's run to wrap up the League One title, but that a loan move may be in the offing to help get the utility player used to first-team football again. It now appears that he is still going to be on the fringes at Burton, and he will now join Wimbledon on loan until the end of this season.
Wimbledon are also hoping to secure Sam Saunders on loan as they continue their push for the playoffs. The experienced Bees midfielder has only been used from the bench in recent months, a situation he found himself in last season as well. Saunders asked to be loaned out, and joined Wycombe at a similar point in the season last campaign. He had a successful time at Adams Park and helped Wycombe reach the playoff final. Although he will not remember that game fondly, as he was taken off early in the match and Wycombe went on to lose on penalties to Southend United. Saunders, a Brentford favourite, will hope to get a good run of games whilst out on loan, and maybe even another run to the League Two playoff final. Linked with a move to the MLS a few months ago, he said that he hoped to be able to stay at Brentford and would do anything to get back into contention for a starting spot for the Bees.
