AFC Wimbledon make contract offer to former Charlton striker

Mark Robinson has revealed that AFC Wimbledon have offered Joe Pigott a new contract.

The former Charlton striker, 27, has scored 54 goals in 167 appearances for the Dons since signing from Maidstone in 2018.

“We’ve made an offer to Joe and I am confident he’s been impressed with what we want to build,” Robinson told the club’s website.

“If it’s a case of Joe continuing to play League One football then I believe he will stay.

“There’s a big part of him that wants to stay and take us forward as a football club. But if offers come in from Championship clubs it understandably may be a different thought process for him.”

Wimbledon are in discussions with current players over new contracts.

“We want young and hungry players with a point to prove,” said Robinson.

“Those players must work hard to be the best they can be, so that we can progress as the season goes on. But we also need an element of experience in there. We’ve got that, if you look at the players we’ve retained.”
