AFC Wimbledon boss Neal Ardley has made his first signing of the summer with the signature of Oxford United winger Sean Rigg.

The 25-year-old, who made 72 appearances for the Us in his two seasons at the Kassam stadium, became a free agent at the end of last season after his two-year contract came to an end.

Ardley had apparently been tracking the former Port Vale and Bristol Rovers man for some time.

He told Dons Player: "I have always liked him when Sean’s played against us and been impressed when I’ve watched him in games.

“I contacted a few people that I trust at Oxford and the feedback I got was that they were stunned that he’d been released because he was one of their better players.

"That’s really positive. Sean works really hard, he’s quick and direct, and can score goals, which is obviously an area we are trying to improve upon."

He added: "His biggest strength is running at defenders down the left side, but if we need to change things in games and throw someone up front then he can also do that too.

"I’m really confident that he will be a good signing.”

The details of Rigg's contract have yet to be announced.
