Benik Afobe has joined League One side MK Dons on loan for the 2014/15 season.

The 21-year-old forward has enjoyed a prolific pre-season with the Gunners, scoring a penalty in the first team’s 2-0 victory over Boreham Wood FC on July 19 and netting twice for an Arsenal XI side against Harrow Borough the following weekend.

An England under-21 international, Afobe has previously spent time on loan with Sheffield Wednesday, Millwall, Bolton Wanderers, Reading and Huddersfield Town.

He featured 12 times for Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship last term.

Afobe heads to stadiummk to gain further first-team experience.

Everyone at Arsenal wishes Benik the best of luck for his time with MK Dons.
