Howe confirms deal agreed for Wolves striker Afobe


AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has confirmed the agreement of a deal to sign Wolves striker Benik Afobe.

Afobe was left out of the Wolves side for their FA Cup tie with West Ham after being reported to be on the brink of a £10million move to Bournemouth.

And, speaking after Bournemouth's 2-1 Cup win over Birmingham City, Howe said: "A deal has been agreed, there are still hurdles for us to overcome but we hope he'll sign in time for Tuesday night.

"He'll bring strength, power and hopefully goals. We'll be excited to see him for Bournemouth if the deal gets completed."
