AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe and West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis have confirmed that striker Callum Wilson will not be leaving Dean Court.
Wilson had been the subject of a lot of interest from rival clubs over the past six months.
Both West Ham United and Newcastle United have reportedly been interested in a move for the Cherries top goal scorer, but The Sun reported that it was West Bromwich Albion who were the club to actually make an approach during this January transfer window.
According to their report ‘Howe rejected their initial approach’ but West Brom are now ‘ready to smash their transfer record with a £20million bid for Bournemouth hitman Callum Wilson.’
That suggestion has now been denied by Pulis who told the Daily Star…
“I spoke to Eddie Howe about a week ago but I was told Wilson is not available.
“I spoke to him directly about the player to see what the situation was but he said ‘No.`”
Speaking to Sky Sports Howe said…
‘Callum Wilson’s not for sale, he’s a massive part of our plans and our future,’
The Alchemist wrote…
‘Think we are looking for about £24 million for Wilson – if they are prepared to match that, I’d take it.
Highly doubt it will ever get to that stage though. – Join the conversation here.
