New right-back Tennai Watson feels a loan move to AFC Wimbledon is just what he needs at this stage in the development of his career.

Speaking to our iFollow Dons channel during his first interview, Tennai said: “I’m excited to get going! I think it’ll be a great season for me and for AFC Wimbledon and I can’t wait to get started and I’m happy to have signed. The manager has made me feel comfortable and it’s something to be excited about.”

A clip of the interview with Tennai Watson is available below, via a link to our official YouTube channel.

The 21-year-old right-back has joined on a season-long loan from Championship club Reading and is highly motivated to do well for the Dons.

“It’s an important stage in my career. Firstly for game time and second to be in a league and team who are ambitious and want to win and to have that competitive streak. I think that will be massive for my game.

“Having that competitive edge to the game and needing to win each week is a bit different. There comes a time when you need to kick on and play men’s football and be in a competitive league.”

The full interview with our new signing is available on our premium iFollow Dons subscription channel.
