Ofoborh said: ”I’m buzzing, I’m just really happy to have this opportunity and hopefully I can do my best in front of the whole world.
”I spoke to Lewis Cook about it before the end of the season. I asked him what it was about, how it feels to play in it.
”Knowing about that and watching him and the way he led the team was enough for me.
“I didn’t need that much more information from him or Dom, because they’re great players, I’ve seen what they’ve done.
“Hopefully, I can take that to my team and help them. I’m buzzing for the opportunity.”
