AFC Wimbledon have signed Steve Seddon on a season-long loan from Birmingham City.
The 22-year-old left-back was a key component of Wally Downes’ side when they avoided League One relegation in the 2018-19 season. He scored three times after arriving from the Blues in the January transfer window.
Seddon had a spell with Portsmouth in the last campaign.
Dons manager Glyn Hodges told the club’s website: “Steve did really well for us a couple of seasons ago and he was a fantastic acquisition back then.
“When we spoke to him earlier this summer we thought we might have half a chance and it gathered momentum last week. When we had the chance to get it done it was something we were really pleased about.
“Steve was probably hoping to stay at Birmingham and get in the team there, but once he was told he wouldn’t be in the squad he needed to get out and play. We are delighted that he has chosen to come here again.
“He will provide energy up and down the flank. He has come in at a time when Nesta is playing well. He has improved, assisted, and scored already, and we also have Paul Osew, so I have a lot of riches down that side.
“Steve will give us a bit of experience, and determination, so he will be an added bonus down the left hand side.”
