Callum Wilson is excited by what the future holds at Bournemouth after signing a new four-year contract at the Vitality Stadium. The England striker, who was linked with Chelsea and West Ham in January, has committed himself to the Cherries until the summer of 2023.
The club’s leading scorer with 14 Premier League goals last season, Wilson scored on his international debut against the United States at Wembley in November and has been capped three times by England boss Gareth Southgate.
“While AFC Bournemouth may be known as a smaller club, we’ve got some really big ambitions here,” the 27-year-old told afcbTV. “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.” Wilson has overcome two serious cruciate knee ligament injuries during his time at Bournemouth.
Cherries 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.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
