Benik Afobe’s move to Hatta Club confirmed – striker sends message to Millwall – South London News
Benik Afobe’s move to the Hatta Club has been confirmed just days after the forward amicably ended his Millwall deal.
The 29-year-old forward’s contract was due to expire at the end of the season.
But Afobe’s deal was torn up late last week.
The former Arsenal, Stoke and Wolves frontman has posted a couple of messages after sealing his move to Dubai.

“I left @millwallfcinsta by mutual consent. Thank you to everyone who has been associated with the club over the past 18 months. I enjoyed my time there with a great bunch of guys. I wish you all only the best.
“Dubai lives and plays in the beautiful mountains of Hatta. Excited about this new adventure.”
Millwall is on the market to expand its attack options.
“Forward areas, goals and attacking options – every club in every division wants the same thing,” said Lions manager Gary Rowett over the weekend.
“Benik assumes it was done on the basis that we want to strengthen ourselves in these areas.”
