Stoke City striker Benik Afobe has completed a season-long loan move to Turkish top-flight side Trabzonspor.

The 27-year-old had a loan spell with Bristol City last term, scoring three goals in five games before suffering what appeared to be a season-ending knee injury in September 2019.

He returned to feature seven more times once the campaign restarted following the coronavirus-enforced break.

Afobe began his career with Arsenal and also played for Wolves and Bournemouth.

He signed for Stoke in June 2018 and has scored nine goals in 51 appearances for the Potters.

In August, Trabzonspor, who finished second in the Super Lig last season, appointed former Chelsea winger Eddie Newton as their new manager.
