Callum Wilson, who has held the prestigious title of Newcastle United’s top goal-scorer for the last three seasons, has officially penned a one-year contract extension with the club. It welcomed the decision to secure the services of the prolific England international and Magpies’ beloved number nine at St. James’ Park until the summer of 2025. It marks a continuation of his goal-rich journey on Tyneside, a remarkable chapter that began with his arrival from AFC Bournemouth in September 2020.
Wilson’s impressive track record boasts 40 goals in 79 league appearances for United, a remarkable feat that includes two goals from four appearances in the current season. These stellar achievements have propelled him to fifth position in the club’s prestigious all-time Premier League goal scorers chart. In this distinguished ranking, he stands just one goal away from the legendary Les Ferdinand. Yet, the prospect of ascending to even loftier heights awaits, with a mere eight additional goals needed to secure second place, trailing only behind the iconic Alan Shearer.
At 31 years of age, Wilson’s contributions extend beyond club football. He has donned the Three Lions jersey with pride, netting twice for England, most notably in a memorable encounter against Malta back in June. His international journey continues to evolve, evidenced by his ninth cap earned during this week’s triumphant victory over Scotland.
Callum Wilson stated that he is delighted to extend his time at the club. He mentioned that he has always felt welcomed ever since he came through the door and now the football club is going in a stunning direction and on a journey as it is nice to commit his future to be a part and parcel of that. He talked about some great things her has to look forward to and he thinks being in the club and amongst its fan base is what players always dream for.
