AFC Wimbledon manager Neal Ardley has released midfielder Huw Johnson.

The 19-year-old featured 11 times for the Dons after making his debut in the final game of the 2011-12 season.

Ardley told the club's website: "With the pressures of fighting relegation last season, I wasn't able to offer Huw many opportunities.

"At Huw's age and at this stage of his career, he needs to be playing first-team football. We can't guarantee him that next season."

He added: "We know that there are clubs interested in him and it therefore seemed best for all parties that he be free to decide where he wants to go to further his career.

"I'd like to thank Huw for his contribution to the club and wish him well in his future career."
