Wolves agree fee for striker
Wolves can confirm they have agreed a fee with AFC Bournemouth for the sale of Benik Afobe.
The striker has now travelled to meet with Eddie Howe and club representatives to discuss personal terms.
In the face of significant pressure, Wolves turned down a number of substantial bids for Benik from a Premier League club in the previous transfer window.
Since that point in the summer, until the present day, Benik has regularly re-stated his desire to leave Wolves and to test himself in the top flight at the earliest opportunity.
Faced with this difficult situation, and with circumstances now changed for Wolves with the Club being made available for sale, Wolves were left with little other option than to reluctantly accept the substantial bid.
Benik leaves Wolves with the Club’s best wishes for the future.
With this bid accepted early in the transfer window, Wolves will now use the time available to support Head Coach Kenny Jackett in his efforts to strengthen the squad.
