Callum Wilson has signed a one-year contract extension with Newcastle United, keeping him at the club until 2025.

Since joining from AFC Bournemouth in September 2020, the 31-year-old striker has scored 40 times in 79 Premier League appearances, topping the club's goalscoring chart in all three seasons and helping them qualify for the UEFA Champions League.

He has the fifth-most Premier League goals for Newcastle, sitting one behind Les Ferdinand and eight away from second place behind Alan Shearer.

In total, Wilson has 81 goals and 22 assists in 205 Premier League matches.

Targeting the 100 Club

"I'm delighted to extend my time here," Wilson told the club's official website. "It's a fantastic football club, I've been welcomed ever since I came through the door and now the club's going in a fantastic direction and on a journey so it's nice to commit my future to be a part of that. 

"When I first joined the club, I had ambitions to come back to the Premier League having been relegated with Bournemouth and over the first few interviews I mentioned Europe and I mentioned getting to 100 Premier League goals.

"They were ambitions of mine and they still are. I'm close to get into the 100 Club, and also becoming the second all-time Premier League scorer for Newcastle would be an amazing achievement, having looked up to Shearer for many years.

"There's so many fantastic names that have been before me at Newcastle - goalscorers who have worn the No 9 - and it'd be nice to join them in the record books during my time here."

Newcastle have endured a tough start to 2023/24 but will hope to end a three-match losing streak when they host Brentford on Saturday.
