Porter back after falling out of favour at Wimbledon

Last updated : 24 January 2014 By Tony Scholes

Porter made the move to the League Two club in mid-July and soon after, in a newspaper interview, said it was proving to be a good move for him both for football and personal reasons. He was getting some first team football and living back in the South East after he'd admitted to not having settled in the North West.

He's played a total of 21 league games for AFC Wimbledon and has started all but four of them. More recently he's struggled to get a game and since November has made just two substitute appearances.

Dons' boss Neal Ardley, a former team mate of Sean Dyche, said today: "There was a review period in January and George's form had dipped a bit before Christmas. George was therefore left out of the squad when we decided to change our shape slightly.

"George was unhappy about not getting game time and Burnley were looking to see if things were happening the way they wanted them to. Both clubs therefore decided it would be best for George to go back to Burnley so that they can review his situation."

Porter, who cost us an initial £90,000 when signed from Leyton Orient, remains under contract to Burnley until the end of the 2014/15 season. He is still to feature in the first team competitively.
