Arsenal Young Star Leaves The Club?

Championship side Birmingham City are planning to sign Arsenal young star Benik Afobe on loan for the next season according to reports.

The England junior player, who has been prolific for his country at all levels he has played in, missed the majority of last season due to a groin injury that he picked up in August last year. The striker returned to action after six months and secured a loan move to Reading and helped them to win promotion to the Premier League.

Arsene Wenger is keen on sending the 19 year old on loan to the Championship to gain more first team experience. Brum manager Lee Clark who is a strong admirer of the strong striker having known him from his Huddersfield days, wants him on loan for the next season as he rebuilds his side to push for Premier League promotion next season.

The striker is likely to take a cal on his future after having talks with Wenger when he joins the training as he returns from the U 19 Euros in Estonia.
