George Francomb: Ex-Norwich midfielder joins AFC Wimbledon

AFC Wimbledon have signed midfielder George Francomb on a free transfer following his release by Norwich City.

The 21-year-old had a successful three-month loan spell with the Dons last season, making 16 appearances.

"I did have a couple of League One clubs interested in signing me, but I wanted to come here," said Francomb.

Francomb played five times for Norwich and also went on loan to Barnet and Hibernian before arriving at Kingsmeadow last August.

Dons boss Neal Ardley told the club's website:  "We were very sorry to lose George when he went back to Norwich because he was probably the highlight for us in a struggling team at the time.

"I really enjoyed working with him then because you could see the quality that he had."
