Wolves sign Boly and Afobe permanently

Wolverhampton Wanderers have triggered the option to sign loanees Willy Boly and Benik Afobe on a permanent basis, the club have confirmed via their official website. The option was included on both players’ loan deals.

Boly, a 27-year-old centre-back, came to the club on loan from FC Porto last summer, and after a fantastic campaign in which he made 37 appearances and scored three very important goals, he’s set to continue at the Molineux as Wolves prepare for life in the Premier League.

The season didn’t start that well however, as he missed an early part of it with a hamstring injury, but he recovered and quickly became a very important piece of the puzzle for manager Nuno.

Afobe, who had already had a successful spell at the club, re-joined Wolves on Deadline day last summer on loan from AFC Bournemouth. He scored six goals in 16 appearances and helped the team earn promotion.

Boly and Afobe follow in the footsteps of 21-year-old Diogo Jota, who also had his loan spell turned into full-time employment with the Wolves.
