Neal on summer transfer plans

12 June 2017

Neal Ardley is delighted with the additions made to his squad so far this summer, but he is prepared to be patient in pursuit of other targets.

Neal's hard work paid off with the acquisitions of Kwesi Appiah and Deji Oshilaja, but the manager is seeking to bring more quality into the squad for AFC Wimbledon's second season in League One.

"We have a lot to do," said Neal. "I made that big statement after the Bradford game when I said that there were a lot of things I needed to get right. It does not happen overnight, some of them might not happen until pre-season, but we have to do a lot of stuff both ways. You try to fit your holidays around it. I've worked hard on the two additions we've made so far and I am absolutely delighted with the pair of them. Going forward, hopefully there will be some more."

It was announced over the weekend that Sean Kelly will join Scottish Premiership club Ross County, the left-back returning to his homeland after one season with the Dons.

Neal added: "We were really pleased with Sean's contribution to the squad and he improved a lot during the course of the season, but he had a great offer to go back to Scotland. We wish him all the best for the future."

Sean made 28 appearances in all competitions for AFC Wimbledon during 2016/17 after impressing on trial last summer.

All at AFC Wimbledon wish Sean every success back in the Scottish top-flight.
