JUST IN: The next AFC Wimbledon signing confirmed

AFC Wimbledon are on the verge of signing free agent goalkeeper Lewis Ward. According to the South London Press, the 27-year-old is expected to join the Dons for their pre-season warm weather training camp in Spain.

This summer, Wimbledon decided to revamp their goalkeeper lineup, with Alex Bass returning to Sunderland after his season-long loan and Nik Tzanev being released.

Ward, who has played 63 League Two matches and kept 15 clean sheets, previously played for Sutton United, Swindon, Exeter, and Forest Green. He left Charlton at the end of last season.

Ward is set to compete for the starting position with Crystal Palace youngster Owen Goodman. The Dons have arranged a loan deal with the Eagles for the former Colchester United player for the upcoming season.
