Callum Wilson: Another serious injury

Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson has been ruled out for the rest of the season after suffering a serious knee injury in training on Wednesday.

The 24-year-old has ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee and is expected to be unable to train for at least six months.

Wilson, who has scored six goals in 21 appearances this term, also suffered a similar injury last campaign.

Manager Eddie Howe told the club’s official website: “We are all devastated for Callum.

“What’s important now is that he receives the support and love of his family and friends, team-mates and everyone associated with AFC Bournemouth.

“Callum showed incredible character and determination to come back from a similar setback last season and we know he has the same strength and will to do the same again.”

Wilson was linked with a £20million move to West Brom on deadline day, but Howe made it clear the former Coventry man was not for sale.

“Callum Wilson’s not for sale, he’s a massive part of our plans and our future,” said Howe.
