Muskwe Will Look to Add Goals

The Zimbabwe international forward had joined Swindon Town for a loan spell last winter before the season was interrupted by the coronavirus pandemic. He made five appearances, all from the bench, and failed to score a goal.

However, Muskwe has experience in finding the net against teams across the Football League via the EFL Trophy. Muskwe has bagged against Grimsby Town and Salford City this campaign, as well as League One opposition in Doncaster Rovers and Tranmere Rovers in 2019/20.

He’s a regular goalscorer for Leicester City U23 this season, scoring three goals in six development league appearances.

Muskwe is an international for Zimbabwe, despite previously representing England at U16 & U17 level.

All the Attributes

Wycombe Wanderers boss Gareth Ainsworth said: “Admiral has all the attributes to be a success in our side and help us score more goals in our survival efforts this season. He’s quick, good with his feet, strong physically and a great goalscoring record, all of which means we believe he can fit well into the way we play and develop his game by benefitting from playing Championship football.

“We have a good relationship with Leicester City,” Ainsworth added. “I’d like to thank them for allowing us to bring Admiral here, and also to Rob Couhig and the board for making it possible. We have a few targets that we’re chasing and we really believe that we’re not far off having a side that can win enough points to keep us in the division.”

Muskwe will wear the number 15 shirt during his stay at Wycombe. The striker will be available to face Preston North End in the FA Cup on Saturday, January 9.

Wanderers sit bottom of the Championship table, four points adrift of safety, and only Derby County and Sheffield Wednesday have scored fewer goals than Ainsworth’s side.
