Loaned by Stoke City to Millwall for the season, Benik Afobe scored a total of 13 goals in 41 appearances for the Championship side.
His contract at the bet365 Stadium is up in a few days, and it appears he will now be heading to Belgium to continue his career.
This comes from Foot Mercato journalist Santi Aouna, who took to Twitter to reveal the soon-to-be-former Stoke City striker ‘has accepted an offer’ from Club Brugge.
It wasn’t the only contract he had on the table, as ‘numerous clubs’ approached him, including Ittihad Jeddah in Saudi Arabia.
Either way, the Stoke man has decided to continue his career in the Jupiler Pro League, where he will play for the first time at the age of 29, which will make it the 13th club of his career.

Afobe came through the Arsenal youth ranks, but never made an appearance for the Gunners, eventually being sold to Wolverhampton Wanderers in 2015 for £2.4m.
Stoke then bought him in 2019 for £12.2m, only for him to go to Bristol City on loan eight months later.
