Millwall target Afobe would "relish" Championship loan


MILLWALL target Benik Afobe says he would be willing to join a Championship club on loan if Arsenal  decided he needed to gain more experience.

The Lions are one of several clubs understood to have registered an interest in the England U19 international, who has had previous spells at Huddersfield and Reading.

The striker is currently on tour in the Far East with the Gunners first team and a decision on his immediate future is expected to be made upon his return.

"If the gaffer wants me to go out on loan for six months, or even the whole season, then I would relish that opportunity because playing for Reading last year was very beneficial for me," Afobe told Sky Sports.

"However, my main aim has always been, and will always be, playing for Arsenal.

"It was a great experience for me to join a side pushing for promotion to the Premier League and all the boys and coaching staff there were really nice.

"They made it really easy for me to blend in and get back playing football again, so it was a great spell for me overall."
