CONFIRMED: Bournemouth smash club record to bring in Benik Afobe

AFC Bournemouth have confirmed that they have signed Benik Afobe from Wolverhampton Wanderers, in a deal that is thought to be around £10million, smashing their club record transfer fee.

Afobe, 22, joins the Cherries on a four-and-a-half year deal after coming through Arsenal’s ranks as a youngster before moving to Wolves, where he has scored 23 goals in 48 games.

After joining Bournemouth, Afobe said;

I’m delighted. It’s been a long time coming and I am just very thankful the manager has given me this opportunity to be at this Premier League club and I can’t wait to get going.

I’ve learned a lot definitely, good things and bad things, and I’m just going to take it all on board and keep improving while I’m here at Bournemouth.

The manager here is a young manager so he obviously understands how young players think

Afobe could make his Premier League debut on Tuesday evening, as Bournemouth take on West Ham United.
