Callum on the verge

Callum McNaughton is set to move to AFC Wimbledon on a permanent basis having been told he has no future at West Ham.

McNaughton is understood to be one of a handful of development squad players told earlier this week that their contracts are not being renewed in the summer.

As a result, McNaughton has entered talks with the Dons - with whom he spent the first half of the season on loan - with regards to a pemanent switch.

Dons boss Terry Brown (no, not that one!) told the Hounslow Chronicle: "We're in discussions with West Ham at the moment. I see Callum having a long-term future with us. He's in the first team now at 20, and I can only see him getting better."

McNaughton, whose one first team appearance against Aldershot in the Carling Cup earlier this season ended in misery after he was sent off for a professional foul, had been keen to remain at West Ham.

As recently as last March he was looking forward to extending his existing contract. "Ultimately I want to play here - there's no question about it," he told whufc.com. "I'm trying to what is best for me so that I can prove myself to the coaches in training day-in, day-out and in the games.

"Everything that comes along, I'll take the decision that is best for me to reach my goal of playing first-team football here."
