Wimbledon Manager Neal Ardley has stressed that he is happy with the signing of Ghana striker Kwesi Appiah from Crystal Palace.

Appiah previously excelled with the league 1 club netting four times in seven appearances on loan before he joined Cambridge United.

Ardley admits he was always ready to bring Appiah back to the Kingsmeadow and he is glad he has achieved that.

“This is such a good signing for the club. We tried several times to bring Kwesi back, but after he took the Africa Cup of Nations by storm with Ghana I thought it could never happen,” Ardley told his club’s website

“Goals are the hardest thing to create and score so Kwesi will hopefully help us in that department. He has been getting fit and sharp playing in Norway and all being well, he will be ready to hit the ground running. We are delighted with this signing and I’m sure the fans will be too.”

Appiah has been a club-trotting player since joining Crystal Palace from Margate in 2012 but he is expected to establish himself at Wimbledon after joining outright.
