AFC Wimbledon boss Wally Downes says he is “really pleased” to have Michael Folivi back after the young Hornets striker agreed a season-long loan move back to the League One club.

The 21-year-old spent the second half of the last campaign with the Dons, scoring two goals in 11 appearances to help them preserve their status in the third tier.

Downes told the club website: “I am just really pleased to get Michael back and I’m looking forward to him joining up with the other strikers. He was a big part of what we did last season. Michael is a forward with a lot of pace who gets in behind defences. After having him here previously, we know that he has a great attitude and he puts pressure on defenders.”

The forward has experienced other loan spells with Boreham Wood and Coventry City, with his sole Hornets appearance coming as a substitute in a 2-0 Premier League defeat at Stoke City in January 2017.
