England striker Callum Wilson joined Newcastle from Bournemouth in September 2020, opening his Magpies account on his debut against West Ham United.
The 29-year-old began his career at hometown club Coventry City, rising through the club’s academy and enjoying loan spells at Kettering and Tamworth before scoring 23 goals in 55 senior appearances for the Sky Blues.
After joining the Cherries in 2014, Wilson fired the south coast outfit to promotion in his first season - scoring 20 goals in 45 Championship outings - before becoming Bournemouth's talisman in the Premier League.
His performances brought full international recognition in November 2018, with Wilson scoring on his England debut against the United States at Wembley.
And in 2020/21, his first season at St. James' Park, Wilson finished as the Magpies' leading goalscorer, bagging 12 goals in 28 outings as United recorded a 12th-placed finish in the Premier League.
Ahead of the 2021/22 campaign, his efforts in front of goal were rewarded as he was handed the club's iconic number nine shirt.
