​Bournemouth striker Afobe happy to make Wolves return

Bournemouth attacker Benik Afobe says that he is delighted that he will be at Wolverhamton Wanderers between now and the end of the season.

Afobe went to Wolves in a loan deal from Bournemouth, having failed to nail down a regular place in the team.

In fact, Afobe was a Wolves player before he joined Bournemouth, and already has a very good rapport with the staff and fans. He spoke about the move on deadline day.

"It's been good playing at Bournemouth in the Premier League but I'm glad to be home – this feels like home for me.

"It was probably the best year of football I have had. I thank Wolves for giving me the opportunity to come back and, hopefully, I can score goals from now until the end of the season.

"I have unfinished business here. I've been keeping tabs on the club and the team for the whole season. I still have friends here and they have been doing great.

"It's a family club so I'm happy to be part of it again. Hopefully, I can help the boys get over the line for promotion and win the league.

"I've always wished nothing but the best for Wolves whether I was here or not here. I'm just hoping we can do it now and have a strong second half of the season."
