Darius Charles has committed his future to AFC Wimbledon after helping his side reach League One for the first time in the club's history.
The 28-year-old had joined Burton Albion on a one-year-deal back in June 2015 but he was still recovering from a broken leg sustained whilst playing for Stevenage.
Having failed to appear for the Brewers, he joined AFC Wimbledon on loan until the end of the 2015/16 season and yesterday gained promotion to League One via the play-offs
And, ahead of completing the deal, Charles paid tribute to the work the AFC Wimbledon dressing room put in.
"I’ve obviously been here on loan for three months now and I’ve been inspired everyday by the boys the work they put in each and every day. It is unlike anything I have ever seen before," Charles said.
"I’ve been asked about the fans so many times and I’ll say again the reason we are here is because of them. They were here long before us and they’ll be here long after us.
"They are literally the 12th man, no matter how you are feeling on any given day, when you come out and see how much it means to them it just gives you that extra five per cent."
Charles was, naturally, delighted after seeing his side claim victory over Plymouth at the national stadium.
"Playoff finals are always crazy games, so I’m knackered emotionally and mentally, but obviously the rewards are well worth it.
"The game wasn’t won today it was won from the start of the season with all the hard work the boys have done."
