AFC Wimbledon boss Terry Brown's search for a target man finally came to an end today (Monday) with the capture of hitman Daniel Webb.

The 24-year-old has become Brown's eleventh signing of a hectic summer and will form the final piece of the Dons boss' jigsaw which he hopes will sustain a promotion assault next season.

Webb, who has Football League experience with Southend United, Brighton, Hull City, Yeovil and Lincoln , joins the Dons after a brief spell playing for Maltese champions Marsaxlokk.

The signing brings to an end Brown's three month search for a target man to lead the Dons forward line next term.

Several forwards, including Neil Shipperley, Paul Furlong and Danny Hockton, have been linked with a move to Kingsmeadow during the on-going saga, but Brown has finally managed to find a big target man he craved for so much over the close season.

The 6ft 1ins striker, who is son of Chelsea legend David, will now battle it out with Richard Jolly, Richard Butler, Marcus Gayle, Steve Ferguson and Stephen Goddard in a bid to cement a place in Brown's starting eleven.

The Dons boss has revealed he has been a long term admirer of the centre-forward and is over the moon to finally have him under his wing.

Brown said: "Dan played against Aldershot when he was on loan at Woking last year. He ran us ragged, as well as scoring a good goal, and I made my mind up at the time that I would sign him if I could.

"Now I have, although it is for another club, said Brown.

He added: " To be honest, I thought I'd lost him because when we heard he was available earlier in the summer we made him an offer but instead he went to play in Malta. But when he became available again, we snapped him up."

Webb was equally as pleased after rubber-stamping the deal in time for his first pre-season training session this evening.

He said: "I was tempted when Terry made me that first offer but I had already committed to Malta and felt I should honour that commitment.

"But it didn't work out and so I am delighted that a big team like AFC Wimbledon has come in for me."
