AFC Wimbledon have signed West Ham goalkeeper Nathan Trott on loan – and we revealed the League One club’s interest at the start of this month.
The South London Press reported that the Dons wanted the England U20 international.
And Trott trained with Wimbledon today as pre-season training started.
Dons manager Wally Downes told the club’s official website: “We watched Nathan last season and he is a very talented boy, so we are delighted to have him here on loan. I got close to the West Ham loans manager and after the success we had with Aaron Ramsdale and progressing him as a keeper, they were keen for Nathan to come to us. Although there were a lot of clubs in for him, we managed to pip them to it.
“You get to see all the games now on the various media platforms and Nathan has been on my radar for quite a while. I watched Nathan play from the comfort of my own home and I went along to watch him live in a couple of reserve games at the end of last season.
“He is a very talented, agile goalkeeper. Though he is young, that shouldn’t inhibit him. Bayzo brought the best out of Aaron Ramsdale and I expect him to do the same job with Nathan.”
