Published on: 02 July 2020

Kwesi Appiah 29, was among a number of players who were declared surplus to requirement by AFC Wimbledon.

AFC Wimbledon occupies the 20th spot of the 23-team table and is battling to avoid relegation after 35 league matches.

Chief Executive of the club, Joe Palmer, explained that the COVID-19 pandemic together with their poor finances has forced them to put some players on the transfer list against their wish.

“We would have liked to have kept some of these players, but with the Covid-19 crisis and without further certainty of revenue coming into the club, we are having to look at restructuring our approach to our playing squad for next season – to be able to put a squad together that will fall in line with the finances available,” he said.

Coach Glyn Hodges, also added that they want to keep just a small number of players for next season and were looking at players who can play multiple positions.

“We are not going to have as big a squad for next season, so it’s important that we have players that can play in different positions,” he said.
