Wilson completes Newcastle transfer


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Callum Wilson has finalised his move to Newcastle United and joined the Magpies for an undisclosed fee.

The move brings to an end a goal-laden six years for Wilson on the south coast after signing for AFC Bournemouth in the summer of 2014 from hometown club Coventry City.

Starting life with the Cherries with a bang, Wilson scored twice on his debut as his new side began their Championship campaign with a 4-0 win at Huddersfield.

The strikes were the first of the 20 league goals he would score across the 2014/15 campaign as Bournemouth were promoted to the Premier League for the first time in their history.

Playing in the top flight for the first time in his career, Wilson scored the Cherries' maiden Premier League goal as he went on to net a hat-trick in a 4-3 win at West Ham, with goals against Leicester and Sunderland following before he suffered a serious knee injury at Stoke in September.

Fighting back to fitness, Wilson scored six league goals in 2016/17 before he experienced a similar injury to his other knee in training, leading to another extended spell of rehabilitation.

After successfully returning with eight league goals the following season, Wilson notched a career-high 14 Premier League strikes in 2018/19, a haul that prompted a first senior international call up.

Wilson was called into the England squad in November 2018, becoming the second active AFC Bournemouth player to turn out for the Three Lions when he made his debut against the USA at Wembley later that month.

In the same game, the striker struck at the near post to become the Cherries' first England goalscorer, Wilson winning a total of four senior caps while with the club.

Across his six seasons with Bournemouth, Wilson scored a total of 67 goals in 187 appearances, a crucial contribution as the Cherries hit new historical heights.

The club would like to thank Callum for all his efforts since signing for the Cherries and wish him the very best with his career going forwards.
