Bournemouth have signed English striker Benik Afobe from Wolverhampton Wanderers on a four-and-a-half-year contract, the Premier League club announced on Sunday.

The fee for the 22-year-old former Arsenal youngster was not disclosed, but British media reports claim Bournemouth have paid a club-record fee of £10 million ($14.5 million, 13.3 million euros).

“I’m delighted,” Afobe told the Bournemouth website. “It’s been a long time coming and I am just very thankful the manager has given me this chance to be at this Premier League club, and I can’t wait to get going.”

Promoted from the Championship last season, Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth are currently 16th in the English top flight, four points above the relegation zone.
