AFC Wimbledon boss: No bids for striker linked with Reading

Wally Downes says AFC Wimbledon have received no bids for Joe Pigott.

The striker had been linked with Reading, who are under a soft transfer embargo after breaching profit and sustainability rules.

Pigott scored 18 goals for the Dons last season.

But Downes confirmed to the South London Press that there had been no offers tabled. He responded: “No, none.

“He is bound to be of interest to any club looking to sign a striker. But he is on a long, secure contract from last season.

“I imagine there will be lots of clubs interested in someone who has scored the goals he has scored – and the amount of goals that he has scored.”
