Wolves are expected to complete the permanent signing of AFC Bournemouth striker Benik Afobe in the summer, as per a report by HITC Sport.

The Premier League striker joined Wolves on loan until the end of the season on deadline day and there is believed to be a clause in his contract which will allow the Midlands club to sign him on a permanent deal in the summer, should they be promoted.

Wolves are currently top of the league and look set for a return to the Premier League under Portuguese boss Nuno Espirito Santo. The signing of Benik Afobe on loan is a huge boost to their promotion chances and his return to Molinuex, two years after he left them to join Bournemouth, was a big signing for them.

The 24 year-old has expressed his delight at returning to Wolves. He scored 22 goals for them in the 2015/16 season and became a hit with their fans before he left to join Bournemouth. His chances were hard to come by in the Premier League but his loan move back to Wolves gives him the chance to help them gain promotion and earn himself a route out of Bournemouth.

Afobe has scored goals for Wolves before and there is no reason why he can’t do it again now. He can be one of the best strikers in the Championship on his day and it will not be long until he starts scoring for them again. Wolves fans can get used to seeing him at Molinuex with a permanent deal in the summer in the pipeline.
