Arsenal youngster Afobe ends Millwall stay after suffering injury

The 20-year-old striker tore his anterior cruciate knee ligament during Tuesday's 2-0 defeat to Wolves and returns to his parent club in order to receive treatment
Arsenal youngster Benik Afobe has returned from his loan spell with Millwall after tearing his anterior cruciate knee ligament.

The 20-year-old striker suffered the injury just 12 minutes into the Lions' 2-0 defeat to Wolves on Tuesday and will require surgery prior to a lengthy lay-off.

The London-born forward, who has yet to make a senior appearance for the Gunners, failed to score a goal in his five outings for Millwall.

"Everybody at Millwall FC would like to wish Benik a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing him back in action as soon as possible," a statement on the Championship club's official website read.

Afobe agreed a season-long stay with Bolton at the start of the campaign but saw that deal brought to a premature end having netted just twice in 16 Championship appearances.
