Former Arsenal youngster Benik Afobe, now of Wolves, was the top scorer in the Capital One Cup 2014/15.

Wolves striker Benik Afobe is celebrating after winning the Capital One Cup Golden Boot for 2014/15.

Afobe did not net any of his goals for the Championship side who he joined in January however, netting them all instead for MK Dons.

22-year-old Afobe was on loan at the Dons from Arsenal at the time, memorably scoring twice in a win over Manchester United.

He struck six times in four matches in total, averaging a goal every 49 minutes he was on the pitch, also scoring past AFC Wimbledon, Bradford City (2) and Sheffield United, who knocked them out.

After Spurs were defeated 2-0 by Chelsea at Wembley on Sunday, Afobe took to Twitter to note the feat.

His message did not go unnoticed by the official Wolves twitter feed, who responded to him to urge him to do the same again in 2015/16, this time for them.

He has had an impressive start since joining Wolves, scoring five goals in nine games and providing three assists, adding to the 19 total goals he netted in all competitions for MK Dons earlier in the campaign.
