AFC Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson has signed a new contract at Dean Court, despite interest from West Ham United, Tottenham and Liverpool.
Wilson joined the Cherries two seasons ago from Coventry City, with the Cherries spending in the region of £3million to sign the striker.
Included in that deal, according to the Coventry Telegraph, was a sell on clause ‘understood to be between ten and 15 per cent’.
Understandably, Coventry City were hoping to cash in on a future transfer, with ‘interest from the likes of Liverpool, Tottenham and West Ham.
However, the former England Under 21’s international has signed a new four year deal at AFC Bournemouth, extending his contract until the end of the 2019/20 campaign.
AFC Bournemouth Chief executive Neill Blake told afcb.co.uk…
‘…Callum has constantly improved during his time here and only his injury stopped him from having a big impact in the Premier League last year.
‘Now back to full fitness, we’re excited to see Callum continue to improve over the next four years.’
Wilson told afcb.co.uk…
‘…I was injured last year when we’d been promoted and I’d always wanted to play Premier League football. This club gave me that opportunity and I wanted to stay.
‘I’m making up for lost time and I want to establish myself as a Premier League player, I’m always going to improve under this manager and this club so it was an easy decision to sign the new contract and commit my future here.”
Excellent news. He’s the main man we have to keep at all costs.
(Might think about a £40m offer though). – Join the conversation here.
