Arsenal complete loan move.

The 19 year old Arsenal striker, Benik Afobe, has officially joined Bolton Wanderers on a season long loan.

The England youth international who has represented the country at U16, U17 and U19 levels, previously had loan spells at Huddersfield Town and Reading.

Afobe is yet to make a senior appearance for the Gunners, so the loan move will provide him with much needed first team experience.

The young striker confirmed the news on his twitter account, adding:

I can now confirm I have joined Bolton Wanderers on loan for the season. Very grateful to be given this opportunity and will give my all for the club in every game and training session. The aim is for me to get first team experience week in week out and mature as a player.

Afobe follows in the footsteps of Miyaichi and Wilshere who previously had successful loan spells at Bolton.
