Torquay United AFC is delighted to announce that Sunderland forward Benjamin Mbunga-Kimpioka has joined the Club on loan until the end of the season.

21 year-old Kimpioka made his senior debut for The Black Cats in September 2018, and went on to open his scoring account for the Wearsiders the following month. Internationally, Benji has also received recognition with Sweden, having won caps for the national side up to Under-21 level.

Manager Gary Johnson is understandably delighted at securing the services of such an exciting prospect for the club.

“We’re grateful to Sunderland for the loan of Kimpioka,” said Johnson.

“He first came to my attention when Lee went to Sunderland. He was injured at the time, and we felt now was the right time for all three parties to make this move.

“He’s a striker with excellent pace, and gives us very good options for our strike force during a very important and hectic game schedule.”
