Ardley is keen to send some of his younger players, such as former Wolves midfielder Louis Harris and youth-team graduate Frankie Merrifield, out on loan in order to gain first-team experience, but the Dons manager is yet to find any takers.

He told the Hounslow Chronicle: "We feel there are some players who could benefit from going out and getting some game-time but at the moment I don't think there's too many clubs knocking on the door to take them. It's something I can't do much about."

Ardley is also keen to bring players in ahead of the Thursday deadline.

He added: "We're working hard to do something behind the scenes but we've already got six loan players so it's difficult. We will certainly be looking to see if there's somebody we can bring in to improve things over the Christmas period."
