Afobe seals Cherries transfer

Bournemouth have completed the signing of Benik Afobe from Wolverhampton Wanderers for a fee of around £10m.

The 22-year-old links up with the Cherries on a four-year contract following a successful medical on Sunday.

The former Arsenal graduate had been in sublime form for the Wolves over the past year where he scored 23 goals in 48 outings in all competitions.

"It's been a long time coming. I have come here and I'm not saying I'm the finished article or the best that I'll ever be, because I know that I've got a lot to work on," he told the club's official website.

Afobe is the club's second winter signing following the loan arrival of Juan Iturbe from AS Roma.
