Scotland prospect Aaron Pressley has signed for English League One club AFC Wimbledon on loan from Brentford.

Pressley – who is capped by Scotland at youth level – is highly-rated by the recently-promoted Premier League club, but Brentford want to expose him to regular senior football. Aaron’s dad, Steven, recently moved to the London club as their head of individual development.

It’s a role where he looks after high-potential players at Brentford, meaning Steven will likely have a hands-on role in his son’s development. AFC Wimbledon head coach Mark Robinson said: “Aaron was our number one priority in terms of forward options.

 

“I’m sure everyone will think I’m bound to say that, but it’s a fact. Out of all the centre forwards we looked at he’s the most similar to Joe Pigott in terms of what he brings to the team. Aaron links up play really well, he can score goals, is good off the ball, and he’s very dynamic.”
