TEAMtalk understands AFC Wimbledon are set to pull off a huge coup by landing in-demand midfielder Ethan Chislett.

Chislett, 21, was enjoying a brilliant season with National League Aldershot Town, with nine goals and nine assists.

This sort of form that saw the likes of Chelsea, Crystal Palace, Leeds, Bournemouth and Middlesbrough all keep close tabs on him.

The South African-born midfielder has also had interest from abroad and Italian outfit Avellino made him an offer.

But the England C International has decided his first step into the professional game should be in League One with Wimbledon.

Chislett started his career in the Aldershot academy but left at the age of 15 to play for Basingstoke Town and Metropolitan Police before returning to where it all started last summer.

Dons boss Glynn Hodges speaking over the weekend told the club’s website: “There might be a couple more announcements. One has agreed, who we will announce.

“Connal Trueman will be in on Monday to train, so he will be another new face coming through the door. It’s good at the moment and it’s added to what was already a good feeling amongst the group.”
