The 20-year-old, who has come through the ranks at the Emirates Stadium, could make his debut against Barnsley on Saturday and is eligible for Wednesday's FA Cup campaign.

Afobe, an England youth international, has yet to feature for Arsene Wenger's men but has had previous loan spells at Huddersfield, Reading, Bolton and Millwall.

He becomes the second loanee to arrive at Hillsborough along with goalkeeper Damian Martinez.
