AFC Wimbledon man set for summer Championship move



AFC Wimbledon striker Joe Pigott will leave the club in the summer transfer window for a move to the Championship, a report from London News Online has claimed.

Pigott joined Wimbledon back in January 2018, and has since gone on to score 47 goals in 137 appearances in all competitions for the League One club.

The striker is however, out of contract with the Dons at the end of this season, and it seems as though that will bring his time with the club to a conclusion.

According to this latest update, Pigott is set to leave Wimbledon on a free transfer in the summer, with the 27-year-old targeting a move to the Championship.

It is thought that Wycombe were interested in signing Pigott during the January transfer window, but with the Chairboys sitting bottom of the Championship table, the striker apparently chose to bide his time in the hope of securing a more secure move to the second-tier for next season.

Were these 20 former AFC Wimbledon player left or right footed?

What foot was Ryan Sweeney?

This season alone, Pigott has scored 13 goals in 25 league appearances for Wimbledon, who currently sit 19th in the League One table, just one point clear of the relegation zone.

The Verdict

It is probably no surprise to see an update such as this.

With Wimbledon struggling in the League One table at this moment in time while Pigott himself impresses, you could understand his interest in a move elsewhere in the summer.

Indeed, given he is available on a free transfer, and with his eye-catching record in front of goal, you do feel as though there will be plenty of interest in the striker from the Championship.

That is something you feel Pigott will be relishing having never really had an opportunity at that level before, and it will be interesting to see just where he ends up next season now this decision appears to have been made.
