Afobe close to permanent Wolverhampton Wanderers return

Wolverhampton Wanderers are closing in on a deal to re-sign Benik Afobe from Bournemouth, according to Sky Sports.

The forward, who moved to the Vitality Stadium from Molineux in January 2016 returned to the Midlands club on loan for the second half of the 2017/18 campaign.

His six goals helped Nuno Esperito Santo’s side clinch the Championship title and was enough to persuade the Portuguese to pursue a permanent return for the DR Congo international.

During his first spell with Wolves, Afobe scored twenty-three goals in forty-two games in all competitions before netting eleven times in seventy outings for the Cherries while his most prolific goal scoring season came in 2014/15 while he was on loan at MK Dons.

Having represented England at every level from U16s to U21s, he made his senior international debut for DR Congo last year, scoring in a 2-0 friendly victory over Botswana in June.
