Ghanaian youngster Michael Folivi joins AFC Wimbledon on loan

Published on: 10 July 2019

Ghanaian forward Michael Folivi has joined AFC Wimbledon for a second loan spell ahead of the upcoming season.

Folivi will spend the 2019/20 campaign on a season-long loan at the League One side.

The 21-year-old striker was with the Dons during the second half of last season, scoring twice in 11 outings as Wally Downes' side successfully avoided relegation from League One.

Wally Downes said: “I am just really pleased to get Michael back and I’m looking forward to him joining up with the other strikers. He was a big part of what we did last season. Michael is a forward with a lot of pace who gets in behind defences.

"After having him here previously, we know that he has a great attitude and he puts pressure on defenders.”

The highly-rated youngster has had previous loan spells with Coventry City and Borehamwood.

He will take the vacant number 17 shirt for next season.
