The ‘Beast’ signed for the Blues in July 2016 following his release from AFC Wimbledon, where he had slotted home a penalty in their play-off final win at Wembley before issuing a come-and-get-me plea to managers via WhatsApp.

The former Swansea, Gillingham and Northampton star finished his first two seasons at Adams Park with 18 goals in each, helping the Blues win promotion to League 1 and collecting the Supporters’ and Players’ Player of the Year trophies along the way.

Another impressive campaign, this time in League 1, earned Akinfenwa a third extension to his contract, keeping him at the club until 2020.
