Would AFC Wimbledon’s striker be a good fit for Rochdale

Rochdale look to add goals to their game with this experienced striker, for free.

AFC Wimbledon have told James Hanson that he is not part of their future plans. However, according to League Two transfer rumours Rochdale has other ideas about the 31-year-old striker.

James Hanson, 31, and his League One club AFC Wimbledon have come to the mutual agreement to bring his contract to a close, with 12 months remaining on his contract.

Now being a free agent, Rochdale have expressed a keen interest in the experienced striker, who has well over 300 games in League Two and League One. Accumulating over 80 goals and 35 assists during his experience in both leagues.

Rochdale will be looking to improve on their 2018/19 EFL League One season which saw them finish 16th place, scoring 54 goals and conceding 87. This left Dale with the worst goal difference in the league, demonstrating how desperately the club need to bolster both the attack and the defence. If they are successful in improving the squad with a qualified goal scorer like James Hanson and reliable defence, we could see Rochdale finish much higher in the table next season.
