Kwesi Appiah joins AFC Wimbledon

Kwesi Appiah had a loan spell at AFC Wimbledon in 2014[/caption] Black Stars striker Kwesi Appiah has clinched a permanent deal with English League One side AFC Wimbledon. Appiah moves to Wimbledon from Crystal Palace, where he has endured mixed fortunes since 2012. Until the end of the 2016/2017 season, Appiah played for Norwegian side Viking FK on loan. He has had other loan spells with Aldershot, Yeovil Town, Notts County and Cambridge United during his time with the Eagles. In 2014, Appiah was at Kingsmeadow for a loan spell, scoring three goals in seven appearances. “I really loved my short spell at AFC Wimbledon a few years ago and I am really hungry to do well after a couple of frustrating seasons,” he said after the deal, which begins on July 1. “I know the people at the club well and I look forward to building a great relationship with the fans again.”

Appiah was pivotal in Ghana’s run to the final of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations. He picked up the Fair Player of the Tournament in Equatorial Guinea. The Dons’ manager, Neal Ardley, believes Appiah will bring much experience to his team. “This is such a good signing for the club. We tried several times to bring Kwesi back, but after he took the Africa Cup of Nations by storm with Ghana I thought it could never happen. “Goals are the hardest thing to create and score so Kwesi will hopefully help us in that department. He has been getting fit and sharp playing in Norway and all being well, he will be ready to hit the ground running. We are delighted with this signing and I’m sure the fans will be too.” Watch one of Appiah’s goals at Wimbledon:
