After the Premier League giants made their interest clear to AFC Wimbledon, a first round of voting saw 98% of Dons’ Trust members voting in favour of selling the stadium.

It has now been revealed that a second round of voting will commence before November the 16th and members are expected to vote in favour of the decision.

The Dons are looking into returning to Wimbledon’s former home Plough Lane and are looking to raise the funds to develop a new 11,000 seater stadium.

Members of the Dons’ Trust think that agreeing a deal to sell their current stadium to Chelsea is the best way of raising those funds so they can return to their spiritual home.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich intends to use the stadium for the club’s youth and ladies’ team, should they get the green light to use it.

Meanwhile, on the pitch, Neil Ardley’s AFC Wimbledon currently sit in 12th place in Sky Bet League Two, having accrued 22 points from 15 league games.

Wimbledon face a match with Ronnie Moore’s struggling Hartlepool United on Saturday, in a game which the Dons will be expected to come out with a victory.
