AFC Wimbledon left-back Jack Currie looks set to stay with the club this summer, which is good news for the South London club. However, there could still be late interest for striker Ali Al-Hamadi.
Jack Currie staying
Currie, who debuted in the opening game of last season, and scored against Gillingham in a 2-0 win, is now in the last full year of his current deal. He has yet to play this season after suffering an injury during preseason but has returned to light training.
The club turned down offers from Bristol City during the January window, but after the door was closed, and a second half of the season in which the Dons form went downhill the interest has cooled somewhat, especially as he has been sidelined. The defender, 21, has been a fan favourite since coming through the excellent Academy setup at the club which has unearthed some real gems of late. Some graduates played in the team’s loss at Chelsea on Wednesday in the Carabao Cup. Morgan Williams gained his full debut at Stamford Bridge and gained rave reviews for his solid showing as he took over duties for the injured Jake Reeves in the heart of midfield.
A new approach for striker
Wimbledon will need to be on their toes as striker Al-Hamadi, who has had Rotherham United and Barnsley cast their eye over the club Player of the Year from last term, is now subject to a fresh approach from Peterborough United. The Posh are likely to come back in with a higher offer, but it will take something special to take the player away from Johnnie Jackson’s side.
Even though the forward has yet to score this season, he is a massive part of what the club has been doing in the first month of this campaign. Coming on with just over half an hour to play in the loss at Chelsea, the Iraqi international was fearless in attacking his markers and needs the rub of the green to open his account. Dons fans will be keeping their fingers crossed that they don’t lose their top scorer of last season, and at the same time be watchful of any incomings to beef up a squad that could be a little thin if troubled by injuries.
