Dons have signed Arsenal’s Benik Afobe on a season-long loan.

The 21-year-old already has a wealth of Football League experience under his belt, having played 79 senior appearances for Huddersfield Town, Bolton Wanderers and Reading.

He said: “I’m really pleased. As soon as I spoke to the manager I knew this is what I wanted to do. It was an easy decision for me.

“I’m a striker who will hopefully score a few goals, I’ve got good pace and I link to link-up with the midfielders and wingers.

“I’m just really looking forward to getting going now. I just want to play games and help this team out as much as I can.”

Afobe is eligible to play against Leicester City tonight, Monday.
