AFC Bournemouth: Coventry striker Callum Wilson looks set to reject Norwich in favour of Cherries
COVENTRY City striker Callum Wilson looks set to reject a move to Norwich City in favour of Cherries.
The 22-goal front man has held talks with both interested parties but sees the Dorset club as a better option.
Wilson, who was also the subject of interest from Wolves and Brentford, bagged 22 goals in 41 appearances last term, making him the third-highest scorer in League One.
Born and bred in Coventry, Wilson debuted in the League Cup in August 2009 and made his first league appearance as a substitute against QPR in December 2010.
He made 17 appearances during a loan stint with Kettering Town in the Conference before being restricted to just three outings at Tamworth, also in non-league’s top flight.
Wilson scored one goal in 12 appearances for City in 2012-13 prior to making his breakthrough under boss Steven Pressley last term.
That he hit the 22-goal mark in 2013-14 was all the more impressive given that he spent two months on the sidelines with a shoulder injury.
