Wilson has on two occasions suffered serious knee injuries which forced him out of the middle part of the 2015-16 season and also saw him miss all of Bournemouth’s matches February until the end of last season.
The striker has battled through his injury woes however, and is ready to push on in what will be Bournemouth’s third consecutive season in the top flight after finishing 12th last time out.
The striker has endured two lengthy injury spells but is happy his hard work has been rewarded
‘It’s nice to see the hard work I’ve put in rewarded and I’m excited about the future,’ Wilson told Bournemouth’s official website. ‘During my time at the club I feel like I’ve developed as a player, both physically and mentally. I’ve progressed and learnt a lot about the game and the position I play.’
After putting pen to paper on his new deal on the south coast, Bournemouth’s chief executive Neill Blake voiced his support for the frontman.
He commented: ‘Callum is natural goalscorer and has proved over the last three seasons that he can do it at the highest level, so this new contract is fully deserved.’
