Dons monitoring Oldham Athletic free agent

AFC Wimbledon and Carlisle United are believed to be monitoring Kyle Jameson after Oldham Athletic announced that the defender will be leaving the club when his contract expires at the end of June.

The South London Press understands that the 23-year-old, a centre-back by trade who can also feature at left-back and has more than 80 professional appearances to his name, could be an option for the Dons heading into their first season back in League Two since the 2015-16 campaign.

Jameson, who stands at 6ft tall and can also play in a back three, mainly operated as a left-sided centre-half for John Sheridan’s side towards the end of the season.

He came through the ranks at Southport before signing with Chelsea as an 18-year-old in 2017. Jameson was snapped up by West Brom’s academy after leaving Stamford Bridge.

During his time with the Baggies, Jameson captained the U23 side on several occasions and spent a season out on loan with National League side Barrow, where he featured 25 times and scored once for Ian Evatt’s side.

Jameson also had a spell with AFC Fylde before joining Oldham permanently in the summer of 2020.

He made 27 appearances and recorded three goal contributions in his debut season at Boundary Park.

Despite making nine appearances at the start of the next campaign, an injury ruled Jameson out for the majority of his second season with the Latics.

He returned for the final six games and started the last three of the season, but Oldham finished 23rd in the League Two table and dropped down to the National League.

The Dons are in the market for a centre-back and a left-back after it was announced that Ben Heneghan will be signing for Sheffield Wednesday on a free transfer, and Nesta Guinness-Walker will become a free agent at the end of his deal.
