AFC Wimbledon striker Jason Prior has joined Blue Square Premier outfit Dartford on a month-long loan deal.
The Chronicle exclusively revealed Prior was set to leave Kingsmeadow last week and confirmed the Darts were leading the chase for his signature.
Wimbledon manager Neal Ardley rubber-stamped the move this morning after deciding the Blue Square Premier team was the right option for Prior to continue his development.
Ardley told the club's official website: “We’ve had a good chat and we decided the best thing for Jason would be to go and get a little run of games somewhere on loan.
“Jason is happy with that and there’s nothing sinister about that other than we’re trying to get back his sharpness and fitness. This is about Jason and we still believe he’s a very good player.”
Prior was signed by former Dons boss Terry Brown in the January 2012 transfer window from Ryman League side Bognor Regis Town.
The 24-year-old suffered a horrendous double leg fracture in his second start for Wimbledon a few months later at Crawley - an injury that halted his progress at the club.
