Sheffield United have confirmed this afternoon that striker James Hanson has now left Bramall Lane – and he has subsequently signed a new deal with AFC Wimbledon ahead of the coming 2018/19 campaign.

The 30-year-old has left by mutual consent after he and the club came to an agreement to cancel what remained of his existing deal with us. Having come in from Bradford City in the 2017 January transfer window, he played his part in our League One title win and promotion into the Championship.
He made 15 appearances in the second half of the 2016/17 season, scoring once in his debut against Wimbledon. In 2017/18 he spent the second half of the year out with Bury on a loan spell.
Manager Chris Wilder had made Hanson available for transfer at the end of the season and presumably, the mutual termination came about as a result of Wimbledon’s interest to ensure the move went through for him.
As Wilder looks to reshape the Blades squad, he follows Chris Hussey, Louis Reed and Samir Carruthers in departing.
Good luck to Big Hans, did a great ???? job for us helping us getting promoted in League One. Wish him All the Best!
