Neal Ardley has teamed up again with 19 year old striker Jesse Darko after signing him on loan from Cardiff.

"Jesse is very quick, has good movement and he works incredibly hard along the front line," Dons boss Neal Ardley told the club's website.

"Importantly, he understands what I want the team to do and how I like us to press, so I do not think it will take him long to fit in."

Darko said he is excited by the move to Kingsmeadow and an opportunity to play first-team football.

"All season I have been trying to get out on loan and get first-team games under my belt," he said.

"I am looking to do what I can for the team and help Wimbledon stay up.

"I worked with Neal Ardley for three years and he knows what I am like as a player. He knows that I will work hard for the team and do my best to help the club in this situation."
