AFC Wimbledon have completed the permanent signing of midfielder Armani Little from Forest Green Rovers, as confirmed via a statement on the club’s website.
The 26-year-old spent the second half of last season with the club, following his loan arrival from Forest Green Rovers and he’s now made a permanent move to Plough Lane.
Who is Armani Little?
The midfielder was a product of the Southampton youth set-up, before signing for Oxford United in 2018. He then enjoyed a Non-League loan spell with Woking before linking up with Torquay United in 2019. He then played a starring role in three years, before joining Forest Green last summer.
He made 21 League One appearances last season, before joining AFC Wimbledon on loan where he made a further 18 league appearances, picking up two assists.
Need to improve
Last season was AFC Wimbledon’s first season back in League Two, following their relegation in the previous campaign. However, the club finished 21st and were caught up in a relegation battle.
Therefore, the club will be eager to improve next season and signing a player like Armani Little will provide a boost to the club’s midfield next season.
What’s been said?
The club released a short statement which stated…
‘The energetic midfielder has put pen to paper on a one-year contract after completing his move for an undisclosed fee from Forest Green Rovers – reuniting with Johnnie Jackson and our first-team squad in the process.
I personally think this is an excellent signing by AFC Wimbledon. He impressed at the club and despite a tough time at Forest Green Rovers, I expect him to deliver.
I also expect AFC Wimbledon to improve next season, with Little playing a key role in that rise. However, the club need more bodies before the League Two season get’s underway.
