Afobe to seal Cherries switch

Benik Afobe has reportedly had a successful medical ahead of his proposed switch to Bournemouth.

Cherries boss Eddie Howe had confirmed yesterday that the former Arsenal graduate was close to sealing a move to the South Coast.

Sky Sports News now reports that the player has completed a series of medical tests and the paperwork on a four-year contract has been sent to the Premier League for execution.

It is added that the Premier League newcomers are expected to pay a club-record fee of around £10m to land the talented marksman.

Afobe could be in line to make his Cherries debut against West Ham United on Tuesday night.
