Benik Afobe signs for Stoke 11 days after signing permanently for Wolves

The striker has officially joined Stoke on loan until January as a player can not sign permanently for two clubs during the same transfer window.

"Whilst we made a decision to exercise the option in Benik's loan deal from AFC Bournemouth at the end of the season, Stoke City's interest in signing him was very strong the end result is positive for all parties".

Don Goodman has suggested to The Express & Star that Wolverhampton Wanderers should not sell Benik Afobe in the summer transfer window amid reported interest from Stoke City.

Afobe joined Wolves on a loan from Bournemouth in January and scored six goals in 17 appearances as the Molineux outfit finished top of the Championship last season and sealed promotion to the top flight.

The Congo DR marksman joins Nigeria global Oghenekaro Etebo as another African recruit at the bet365 Stadium, with Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Ndiaye Badou on Rowett's books.

This Wolves supporter senses something is a bit odd with Afobe, and feels that the striker knew that he would be moving elsewhere even when he joined the Black Country club.

This fan feels that the only reason Nuno Santo chose to sign Benik Afobe on a permanent basis is because he knew he could make a quick profit on him, and that has certainly been proven.
