Bournemouth tie Wilson down to 4-year deal

Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson has signed a new four-year contract, the Premier League club have confirmed.

The 26-year-old joined the Cherries from Coventry City in 2014, helping fire the south coast club into the top flight with 20 goals in 45 Championship appearances.

Wilson has seen more and more game time in each of Bournemouth’s three Premier League seasons to date, netting eight goals in 28 appearances last season.

This news comes 24 hours after it was reported that Bournemouth have accepted a £6 million offer from Championship side Nottingham Forest for fellow striker Lewis Grabban having already sold Benik Afobe to Wolverhampton Wanderers for £10 million this summer.

Manager Eddie Howe has largely been quiet in terms of signing players this summer but does have Jermain Defoe, Joshua King and Lys Mousset has alternate options to Wilson up front.

Bournemouth start their 2018-19 Premier League campaign at home to newly-promoted Cardiff City on Saturday 11 August.  The Cherries finished 12th last season.
