Callum Wilson has signed a new four-year contract at AFC Bournemouth.

The 27-year-old England international’s deal will keep him at Vitality Stadium until at least the summer of 2023.

Striker Wilson was the Cherries’ leading scorer last season, with 15 goals in all competitions. The 2018/19 campaign also saw him net on his senior England debut against USA - the first of three caps for his nation.

He has scored 58 goals in 148 appearances for AFC Bournemouth to date, having joined the club from Coventry City in the summer of 2014.

“We’ve improved in all areas since I initially joined the club but there’s still a long way to go,” Wilson told afcbTV at the club’s Spanish training camp.

“While AFC Bournemouth may be known as a smaller club, we’ve got some really big ambitions here. Everyone is pulling in the same direction towards those targets and goals.

“I feel like as an individual, my game is constantly improving here at the club. I want to continue that progress and reach even higher targets. I’m really excited about what the future holds.”

AFC Bournemouth chief executive, Neill Blake, said: “Throughout his time at the club Callum has demonstrated incredible determination to succeed at the highest level - even in the face of adversity in the form of two season-ending injuries.

“He has proved himself as a Premier League striker and is now beginning to establish himself at international level, and this contract is just reward for that.

“We have no desire to lose our best players and this is further evidence of the board’s commitment to keep AFC Bournemouth progressing year on year.”
