AFC Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson has penned a new deal with the Cherries to remain at Dean Court until the summer of 2022.

The 26-year-old has agreed on a new improved four-year-deal, after firmly establishing himself as one the most natural finishers in the top flight of English football.

Wilson joined the Cherries from Coventry City in 2014, making the step up from League One to the Championship.

In his first season, he scored 20 goals and claimed 7 assists as AFC Bournemouth won the Championship and with it promotion to the Premier League.

His time in the Premier League has been hampered by two severe knee injuries but has still netted 19 times in 61 appearances.

Wilson told

“I’m delighted to sign, It’s nice to see that the hard work I’ve put in be rewarded and I’m excited about the future.

“During my time at the club I feel like I’ve developed as a player, both physically and mentally. I’ve progressed and learnt a lot about the game and the position I play.”

Meanwhile, Nottingham Forest have now completed the permanent signing of Lewis Grabban for an undisclosed fee of around £6million.

He was very up and down last season, falling behind Josh King’s level in my opinion.
I hope he can settle down and rediscover a consistent touch.
He’s presumably one of the club’s highest earners again with this, and as such would be expected to start regularly. – Join the conversation, click here.
