Barrett extends Wimbledon stay

AFC Wimbledon have extended the loan spell of Gillingham defender Adam Barrett until the new year.

The 34-year-old initially joined the Dons on a two-month loan deal at the start of the season and has now agreed to stay until January 4.

Dons boss Neal Ardley told the club website: "To get a player of Adam's quality in the first place is a big deal, but to keep him for such a difficult period of the season is a real positive for us.

"The loan deal will keep Adam here until after Christmas and we can then assess it from there."
