AFC Wimbledon

Middlesbrough, QPR and Brentford amongst Championship pursuit of EFL player



AFC Wimbledon starlet Nesta Guinness-Walker is attracting the interest of Championship clubs including Brentford, Queens Park Rangers and Middlesbrough.  

Guinness-Walker, 21, made 23 appearances for Wimbledon in League One last season, scoring one goal and registering another assist.

The youngster has all the traits to be a real asset from the full-back role, with his attacking instincts a big plus.

Quiz: Have Middlesbrough ever loaned out any of these 9 players?

Have Middlesbrough ever loaned out Marvin Johnson?

As per TEAMtalk, there’s interest in him from the Championship, with Brentford and QPR interested alongside Northern duo, Middlesbrough and Huddersfield Town.

That Championship quartet have just a couple of weeks to wrap up any deal for the full-back, with Brentford’s situation an intriguing one to watch.

Rico Henry is currently their go-to left-back, but he’s on the radar of a few in the Premier League and may need replacing.

The 23-year-old, unlike a few of his other in-demand Brentford teammates, has been involved in Thomas Frank’s side at the early stage of this season.

The Bees beat Huddersfield 3-0 on Saturday afternoon to record their first victory of the season.

The Verdict  

It was a hugely encouraging first season in the EFL for Guinness-Walker in 2019/20.

The full-back showed some great attributes and really settled in well with Wimbledon last year.

The traits he’s got could allow him to thrive in the Championship, particularly in an attack-minded side like Brentford.

Frank has really got Henry thriving in the left-back role and, if he’s to move on, there will be a hole in the side to fill.

It’s ‘very Brentford’ if they decide to pick up Guinness-Walker to replace him, but the Bees face some fierce Championship competition.
