Arsenal Football Club can confirm Benik Afobe has today joined Championship side Sheffield Wednesday on loan until the end of the 2013/14 season.

The Leyton born forward has enjoyed loan spells with Millwall, Bolton Wanderers, Reading and Huddersfield Town previously. He has made seven appearances for the Gunners’ Under-21s side this season, scoring four goals, including a late winner in the U21 Premier League Cup against Chelsea on Monday evening.

Afobe will look to gain first-team experience with Stuart Gray’s side, while helping the team to rise up the Championship table.

Everyone at Arsenal wishes Benik the best of luck for his time with Sheffield Wednesday.
