Neal Ardley has decided Charlie Sheringham is not the answer to AFC Wimbledon’s goalscoring problem and allowed him to leave the club.
The strikers contract was up this summer and he won’t be getting an new one from the Dons as boss Ardley looks elsewhere for firepower this summer.
Sheringham, son of former Manchester United and England star Teddy, never really got going at Kingsmeadow and struggled with injuries after joining from Bournemouth.
Ardley told Dons Player: “We had an open conversation today and from Charlie’s point of view he feels he probably never got a good run in the team and rightly so. It was stop-start for him after he suffered a bad injury. From my point of view we had a bit of a striker crisis throughout the season and we were not scoring enough goals.
“It has not quite worked out and it’s an area that I feel needs to be freshened up to try and solve the problem from last season. Charlie is a good player and I think he will do well wherever he goes. I hope he gets a good deal somewhere else.”
Sheringham leaves having made 15 League Two appearances in the famous blue and yellow but only mustered one goal for the club.
