Glyn Hodges expects loan pair Mads Bech Sorensen and Max Sanders to add significant strength to Wimbledon’s squad in the coming months.
In his update ahead of the trip to Portsmouth, our manager spoke enthusiastically about an important few days for the club with Paul Osew having also signed a new contract.
Glyn said: “It’s been an excellent week. Obviously, Michael Folivi and Ryan Delaney went back to their clubs, but the loan deal for Max has been extended and he’s been in fine form. He’s a talented boy who has fitted in really well at the club. Max gets on well with the other lads and he’s made a good impression here.
“Mads is a good acquisition, he’s someone we’ve known about and chased for a while, so we are pleased that he’s able to come here. We had someone watching him in the FA Cup game last weekend and when the report came back he had played in the same system that we play, on the left of a three. We know what he’s about: he’s very comfortable on the ball, he’s got a great left foot, and hopefully he improves the squad, and makes us better.”
Nineteen-year-old left-back Paul Osew committed his future to Wimbledon and Glyn added that he believes the player can recapture the exciting form that he showed earlier this season.
“Paul Osew has warranted his new contract, he’s done really well since he came in and hopefully they are three young players that can make a big impact in the new year. Paul has a lot of good attributes and when he first came into the side we were thinking ‘let’s get this done straight away’. People are soon alerted to young talent in this division, so it’s taken a bit longer than we would have hoped, but he’s signed his contract and now he can concentrate on improving every day and push to get back into the team.”
