AFC Wimbledon complete deal to bring centre-back Darius Charles back for another spell

AFC Wimbledon have re-signed their former defender Darius Charles.

The experienced centre-back, 33, becomes the Dons’ second addition of the summer transfer window, after the arrival of Luke McCormick from Chelsea.

Charles had been at Wycombe Wanderers until his contract expired on July 1.

Wimbledon head coach Mark Robinson told the club’s website: “In terms of playing he will be more as cover.

“He’s very capable of playing, but I’m quite happy with the centre-back options that we’ve got. Darius will be there if we need him to play, but he’s also there to implement everything we want around the changing room and the environment.

“We are going to have by far the youngest squad in the four divisions, so he is going to be there to provide that experience because he has promotions under his belt.

“We are going to help him on his pathway in coaching because that’s what he wants to do. It’s a fantastic signing for what we want to do now and in the future. He will be here helping young players in the way I believe they need to be helped and motivated, so that they can perform to the best of their ability.”
