Nnamdi's back!

Bournemouth midfielder returns on loan.

1 February 2021

Gareth Ainsworth has secured the return of promotion-winning star Nnamdi Ofoborh on a deadline day loan deal for the rest of the season, the club is delighted to confirm.

The Bournemouth midfielder, aged 21, played 25 times for the Chairboys last season, scoring a memorable goal to help the Blues to a play-off semi-final victory at Fleetwood Town, but has been limited to just five appearances for the Cherries this term.

Ainsworth said: “We know what Nnamdi is all about and we’re really pleased to bring him back here. There were a lot of clubs interested in signing him, but Nnamdi enjoyed his time with us last season and knows there’s a great opportunity for him to develop his experience further by coming back and helping us over the second half of the season.

“He’s got all the attributes to become a top-class central midfielder, as we saw last season with his ability at both ends of the pitch, and I know he can also fill in in defence which could prove to be useful.

“We have strong competition for places all over the pitch now, with the signing of Jordan Obita last week and players returning from injury, and now we’re really looking forward to getting stuck into this busy schedule of fixtures in February and picking up as many points as we can.”

Nnamdi will wear squad number 28; fellow new arrival Jordan Obita has been handed the 27 shirt.
