Easy decision for Afobe

New MK Dons signing Benik Afobe insists it was an easy decision to make the move to stadium:mk.

Arsenal striker Afobe joined the Sky Bet League One club on a season-long loan deal on Tuesday and featured for Karl Robinson's side that evening as they concluded their pre-season schedule with a 2-0 friendly defeat to Leicester.

The 21-year-old told the Dons' official website: "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 like 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 already has a decent amount of Football League experience under his belt having made 79 senior appearances during previous loan stints at Huddersfield, Bolton and Reading.
