Benik Afobe has joined MK Dons on a season long loan deal.
The youngster, once tipped for big things at Arsenal, has had loan spells at Huddersfield and Sheffield Wednesday in the past, and is expected to make his Dons Debut tonight against Leicester City.
Speaking to their official site, he said, “I’m really pleased. As soon as I spoke to the manager I knew this is what I wanted to do. It was an easy decision for me.
“I’m a striker who will hopefully score a few goals, I’ve got good pace and I link to link-up with the midfielders and wingers.
“I’m just really looking forward to getting going now. I just want to play games and help this team out as much as I can.”
With the signing of Alexis Sanchez, the development of Yaya Sanogo and the emergence of 18 year old Chuba Akpom, Afobe’s chances of making it at Arsenal look very slim indeed.
However, we wish him the best of luck with the MK Dons.
