AFC Wimbledon Star Linked With League One Move

AFC Wimbledon Star Linked With League One Move

If a player is not signed with their current club for the upcoming season, there is a lot of conjecture regarding their future at this time of year.

This also applies to Ronan Curtis of AFC Wimbledon, who has not yet reached an agreement with the team for a new contract. Although nothing more has been revealed, the Dons’ retained list mentioned that they were in talks with the forward for a new contract.

Curtis would only sign a short-term contract with the team in January after being let go by Portsmouth the summer before. Given that Curtis hadn’t played for a senior team since February 2023 due to injury, manager Johnnie Jackson took a risk, but it ended up working out fairly nicely.

In 16 games, the former Ireland international would net five goals and dish out two more assists, solidifying his place as a club legend. His extra-time winner would ultimately upset archrivals MK Dons, a goal that was warmly received by the supporters.


There are concerns over whether Curtis would return to League One if he is unable to reach an agreement for a new deal at Wimbledon, given that he has demonstrated that he still has a lot of skill.

The forward, who has 184 League One appearances for Portsmouth, appears to be attracting interest as well. Once healthy, he may be a very good addition for many teams.

If Curtis is unable to work out a new deal at Plough Lane, The Bristol Post reported that Bristol Rovers, owned by Matt Taylor, are interested in signing him. After finishing in 16th place in League One this season, Rovers will be looking to improve, and bringing Curtis on board would be a wise move.

The article claims that several other unidentified League One clubs are keeping an eye on the situation in addition to the Gas, who are reportedly interested in the 28-year-old.

Curtis is aware that he has the potential to grow into a true fan favorite at Plough Lane in the future, but the chance to play higher up the ladder may influence his choice.

There were undoubtedly concerns about Curtis’ ability to recover from his protracted injury layoff, but during his time at Wimbledon, he has disproved everyone who had misgivings.

Jackson will put a lot of effort into trying to stay with the team for the upcoming campaign, but if teams like Bristol Rovers are willing to pay a premium, it might be a difficult assignment. Curtis has the potential to be a star in League One, and that’s where he might wind up on his best day.

He is more likely to leave this summer if there is no further update on the negotiations with his current club. It is a little harsh on Wimbledon because they have provided him with a platform to launch a new career, but League One teams ought to be chasing him given his stellar record in front of goal in the league.
