Rowett on "good option" for Afobe

Signing number four for the boss...

2 July 2021

Benik Afobe has joined Millwall on a season-long loan from Stoke City - and manager Gary Rowett believes that the deal comes at a good time for the striker.

The 28-year-old put pen-to-paper after completing his medical and meeting his new team-mates, and will slot straight into The Lions' squad as 2021/22 pre-season training gets underway.

Speaking to, the boss described his fourth summer signing by saying: "Benik comes in and adds a recognised striker with Championship quality and experience that we were after to give us another option in those forward areas.

"I believe it's good timing for Benik and that we are a good option for him in terms of where he needs to be and what he wants to do next season.

"I'm excited for all of the players to come in."
