DONS boss Neal Ardley will consider extending Neil Sullivan’s loan spell at AFC Wimbledon if the keeper impresses in the coming weeks.
Sullivan was reunited with old pal Ardley at Kingsmeadow last week after the two became friends while playing for Wimbledon together for nine years in the 1990s.
The 42-year-old is on loan from Doncaster Rovers and the initial deal will keep the veteran shot-stopper at the League Two outfit until January.
But Ardley will discuss the possibility of an extension with Rovers if Sullivan, who took the place of Seb Brown between the sticks on Saturday against Aldershot Town, proves both his fitness and quality on the field before the current deal expires.
“He is here until January for the time being,” explained Ardley. “That was done on purpose just to make sure that both the club and Neil were happy with the situation.
“If Doncaster are still in happy in January then we’ll see [about an extension] but we wanted to make sure all parties were comfortable with it.”
Sullivan put in a decent performance in the 1-1 draw with Dean Holdsworth’s men and picked up the man of the match award for his display.
