AFC Wimbledon are braced for a Jack Rudoni transfer request as they dig their heels amid the Championship interest in their star midfielder.

Sunderland, Huddersfield and Luton are all pushing to sign rising midfielder Rudoni from Wimbledon.

The League Two side have rejected offers from Sunderland and Huddersfield which, with add-ons, could rise to over £1million.

Wimbledon are happy to let Rudoni leave however they are remaining steadfast in their determination to secure a guaranteed £1m for their academy product.

That valuation has so far proved prohibitive for his admirers, leaving a possible sale in the balance with Rudoni having just a year left on his contract.

Wimbledon rebuffed ‘substantial’ offers for Rudoni in January but are understood to have promised he would then be allowed to leave in this window.   

With that not yet materialising, the ongoing impasse has left the 21-year-old, who has trained separately this week, further unsettled and frustrated that he is being priced out of a move.

Despite Championship interest, the Dons are determined to receive £1m up front for Rudoni

‘Wimbledon’s stance on this has also concerned other academy prospects within the club who were looking to follow in Jack’s footsteps into the first team,’ one source said.

Rudoni is understood to have had talks with manager Johnnie Jackson and received sympathy from within the Wimbledon camp regarding his situation.

The midfielder has made over 100 appearances since his debut in 2019 and his 12 goals and four assists last season helped him win Wimbledon’s player of the year award.
