CALLUM Wilson penned a new four-year deal at Cherries and admitted his hard work had been rewarded.

The 26-year-old striker will remain at Vitality Stadium until at least the summer of 2022.

Wilson joined Cherries from Coventry City four years ago and scored 20 goals in his first season to fire the Dorset club into the Premier League.

And despite suffering two serious knee injuries since, Wilson has pitched in with 19 crucial goals in the top flight.

He told the club website: “I'm delighted to sign. It's nice that the hard work I’ve put in has been rewarded and I'm excited about the future.

“During my time at the club, I feel I've developed both physically and mentally.

“I've progressed and learned a lot about the game and the position I play.”

Cherries chief executive Neill Blake said: “Callum is natural goalscorer and has proved over the past three seasons that he can do it at the highest level, so this new contract is fully deserved.

“To overcome the injuries he has suffered and still be performing in the Premier League week in, week out, speaks volumes about his mental strength, desire and dedication.

“Callum is an infectious character, a winner and a big part of the dressing room. Therefore, I’m delighted he is committed to the club and to helping us achieve our targets.”

In all competitions, Wilson has scored 43 goals in 115 appearances for Cherries.

Meanwhile, midfielder Andrew Surman has signed a one-year contract extension.

The 31-year-old, who is on the brink of his 200th appearance for the Dorset outfit, will remain at Vitality Stadium until at least the summer of 2020.

Surman told the club website: “I love playing for this club and have loved my time here so far.

“It has been a great time to have been part of the club, so to extend my time further is a great achievement.

“I want to help the club finish higher than we did last season.”

Blake added: “The club’s journey to the Premier League is one which has been spoken about many times, and Andrew has been key to that in the heart of our midfield.

“As well as being an excellent footballer, he is an outstanding professional and someone who has many years left in the game because of the way he looks after himself.

“He still has plenty to offer.”
