AFC Wimbledon

Sunderland among Championship clubs knocked back with seven-figure approach for midfielder



Sunderland and Huddersfield Town have both had bids rejected for AFC Wimbledon midfielder Jack Rudoni, a report from The Daily Mail has claimed.

Rudoni enjoyed an impressive campaign last season, scoring 12 goals and providing five assists in 41 league appearances for the Dons, although he was unable to prevent the club suffering relegation to League Two.

As a result, it now seems as though a number of sides further up the pyramid, are starting to make moves in an attempt to secure the services of the 20-year-old.

In what year were Sunderland formed?

According to this latest update, both Sunderland and Huddersfield have seen bids in the region of £1million for Rudoni, rejected by Wimbledon.

It is thought that both clubs will however, continue to hold talks with the Dons over the potential signing of the midfielder.

Meanwhile, Bristol City and Premier League side Southampton are also said to have made enquiries about Rudoni, who is reportedly also attracting attention from two other Championship clubs in Luton and Millwall.

There is apparently a year remaining on Rudoni’s contract with Wimbledon, and the midfielder is expected to leave the club this summer in what will be a record sale for the Dons.

The Verdict

It is no surprise to see AFC Wimbledon turning down these bids for Rudoni.

Given how impressive he was last season, and the level of interest there is in the midfielder, it does seem as though a bidding war could be on the cards for the 20-year-old.

That is something that could drive the fee up by itself, which could be rather important in terms of bringing in funds for the Dons following their relegation to League Two.

With that in mind, it will be interesting to see exactly how this one plays out, given this could be a big coup for whichever side is able to complete a deal for the midfielder.
