AFC Wimbledon transfer target Danny Hylton is set to sign for Northampton Town today.
The Dons had been keen on a deal for the experienced striker, 33.
And the South London Press had been told that Hylton had Wimbledon as a serious option on his shortlist heading into last weekend.
But Hylton, who is being released by Luton Town, has opted for the Cobblers and is expected to wrap up the switch this morning.
Hylton is a firm Hatters fans’ favourite after scoring 62 goals in 170 appearances after joining from Oxford United in the summer of 2016.
He has netted 102 goals in 341 matches in League Two.
