Benik Afobe’s proposed move from Wolves to Stoke City has been confirmed with the Championship, just days after he moved to the Molineuax from Bournemouth.
Wolves took up the option of signing Afobe at the end of his five-month loan deal for £10m on June 1. However, Stoke offered an immediate £2million profit and his sale has been agreed.
The striker has agreed personal terms with Stoke and joins on an initial six-month loan deal with an obligation to complete the transfer in January.

Manager Gary Rowett told their official website: ‘If there’s one signing you want to make to get you out of the Championship Benik is that kind of player.
‘The club have worked incredibly hard to make the signings of Benik and Etebo happen and I think it shows how quickly we want to hit the ground running and the type of players we want to bring to the club.
‘Getting those two in the building is a fantastic start.”

Wolves, meanwhile, are flexing their financial muscles this summer and are lining up a number of new acquisitions.
The newly-promoted Premier League side agreed a permanent deal for Willy Boly at the same time Afobe confirmed he would stay on at Molineux for a combined fee of around £22million.
They have also completed the signing of striker Raul Jimenez on loan from Benfica.
The 27-year-old joins on a season-long deal and Wolves have an option to buy him for around £30m next summer.
The Mexico international forward is away with his country ahead of the World Cup in Russia.
