Striker sees future in Premier League with Wolves

16th April 2018, 16:17 by Simon Barlow

Bournemouth forward Benik Afobe has told Wolverhampton Wanderers team-mates he wants to be part of their Premier League return.

The 25-year-old scored the goal that sealed promotion for the Championship club as Wolves beat Birmingham City 2-0 at Molineux on Sunday.

And Afobe has told friends at the Black Country club he wants to stay rather than returning to the Cherries this summer.

Wolves defender Matt Doherty, one of Afobe's close pals, said: "He would love to come permanently next summer."

Afobe has scored five goals in 14 appearances since returning to the club on loan from Bournemouth in January.

The Championship club have an option to make the deal permanent but Afobe, who cost Bournemouth £10m to sign from Wolves in January 2016, won't come cheap.
