JKG aims to show killer instinct

New forward targets goals

17 January 2024

John-Kymani Gordon has talked up hitting a hotstreak after completing his loan move to the Dons.

The talented Crystal Palace forward is set to spend the rest of the 2023/24 season in the colours of yellow and blue and is understandably keen to show our fans what he has to offer.

Despite being just 20-years-old, John-Kymani has already experienced a lot in his senior career, with his achievements ranging from signing his first professional contract with the Eagles to achieving promotion via the Sky Bet League Two play-offs with Carlisle United.

Here our new man talks us through his journey and expresses his delight at becoming a Wimbledon player as part of his first interview since joining the Club.

Watch the full conversation and read the transcript below!

ON BECOMING A DON…

I know how big this club is having played against Wimbledon last season. I’m very excited to fit into an attack-minded team, I feel like I’ll fit in perfectly and score some goals here. The team’s done really well up to this point and my job now is to come in and help them. I’m a hardworking, aggressive and passionate player. I just want to win and push the team as high in the league table as possible.

ON PROMOTION WITH CARLISLE…

It’s a period in my career that I’ll never forget. It happened to be my fast loan, which felt crazy. I was able to play at Wembley in front of my family and all of the fans. It’s a memory that will stay with me. 

ON PROGRESSING WITH THE EAGLES…

I have a lot of love for Crystal Palace as I’ve been there since I was eight years old. They’ve always treated me well, I’ve got from playing in the academy to training with the first-team. It’s been a good journey.

I’m training with players that I really used to look up to and now I’m in the position where I can train with them. I learn from them and Roy Hodgson, he’s managed a lot of teams and has years of experience.

I’ve lived close to Selhurst Park. Even if I wasn’t at the games, I could still hear the noise of the crowd and see the floodlights overhead. I still live close to the stadium. It was almost a dream to play at Selhurst Park. 

Here’s some of John-Kymani’s best career highlights to date!
