Manager Neal Ardley has warned that he might need to do some “wheeling and dealing” at AFC Wimbledon this summer to sign the players he believes will improve the squad – and that is likely to involve freeing up finances by offloading some of the current squad.
The Dons enjoyed a successful first season in League One, and despite a stuttering finish, were well clear of the relegation zone.
And always looking to improve, Ardley is already planning for his team's second season in English football's third tier.
But the Dons boss admits he doesn't have a lot of money to play with at the moment and could be forced to sell before he can bring in the players he wants.
“It depends on budget and as it stands as the moment, there isn't a lot in there to play with so we would have to get people out to get people in,” Ardley explained.
“But if we can generate a little bit of money and if we can do a little bit of wheeling and dealing, then there could be more.
“It could be anything from a really quiet summer but a couple of quality additions to a little bit more and maybe five or six coming and of really good quality. We will see, I couldn't put a figure of what it is going to be at the moment.”
