Bournemouth midfielder Nnamdi Ofoborh: Wycombe loan so important for me

Bournemouth midfielder Nnamdi Ofoborh is happy to have extended his loan with Wycombe Wanderers to the League One playoffs.

The 20-year-old midfielder has played 22 times for Gareth Ainsworth's side this season and is preparing to take on Fleetwood in the play-off semi-finals at the start of July.

Speaking about his experience with the Blues, Ofoborh told the Cherries website: “At first I was nervous going into a whole new changing room, I realised quickly that like at Bournemouth I was still the youngest, the baby of the team!

“When I played my first game we won 3-1 at home to Lincoln and that took us to the top of the league.

“I got thrown straight into the deep end of a promotion race and games that mean so much, that was something I could only dream of.

“Everyone says going out on loan is a learning experience, but it actually has been. You learn all the things from training with the first team at Bournemouth and then you go out and try to implement them.

“It's been amazing playing in front of crowds, having your name on the back of your shirt, your family coming to watch, going to places like Ipswich, Sunderland, Portsmouth, it's been massive."
