AFC Wimbledon have signed former Charlton winger Lloyd Sam on a short-term deal. 

Lloyd Sam has been training with the League One side since he was released by MLS side DC United in November.

The 33-year-old started his career at Charlton before playing for Leeds, New York Red Bulls and DC United.

"Lloyd has been with us for a month or two now, training and getting fit," said Wimbledon manager Neal Ardley.

"He's shown us in training that he has ability and he just needs to get the physical side of his game up to speed.

"He is a tricky right-winger, an attacking player. What part he can play until the end of the season, is always tight, but he is on a short-term deal."

Ardley moved to sign Lloyd Sam before the EFL deadline closed on Thursday to provide cover for the injured Cody McDonald.
