Reuters reports that newly-promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers have re-signed striker Benik Afobe from Bournemouth on a permanent deal, after a successful loan spell at Moulineux.
Afobe was on loan at Wolves for the second part of last season and scored six goals in 17 appearances. Now the runaway Championship winners have activated a clause in his contract and he will move to Wolves on a permanent basis, having played there for one season between 2015 – 2016, before moving to Bournemouth for a club record fee of £10 million.
The London-born striker began his career at Arsenal but never played a senior game for the club, instead embarking on a series of loan moves to lower division clubs before eventually joining Wolves.
Having represented England at every level up to under-21 level, he opted to switch his international allegiance to the Democratic Republic of Congo, who is qualified to represent through his parents, and scored on his debut for his adopted country against Botswana last year.
