Neil Sullivan's time at AFC Wimbledon comes to an end with Ardley's praise ringing in his ears
AFC Wimbledon have signed Charlton Athletic goalkeeper John Sullivan on loan until the end of the season after Neil Sullivan was recalled by Doncaster Rovers.
Neal Ardley brought in the custodian after Doncaster's number one keeper - Gary Woods - was injured, forcing them to trigger the call-back clause in Neil Sullivan's loan agreement.
John Sullivan, 25, has made seven first team appearances for the Addicks, as well as spending time on loan at Yeovil Town and Colchester United.
Doncaster's decision in recalling Sullivan means the veteran shot-stopper cannot return to Kingsmeadow.
Ardley told the club's website: “John is local and he will bring a lot of good qualities for us.
"That is not to detract from what Neil Sullivan has done for us. We have lost Neil now as the rules state that once he has been recalled in an emergency then he cannot come back.
"But hel has been fantastic for us and despite his age, I still think he was one of the best goalkeepers in League Two during his time with us.”
