EDDIE Howe has scotched rumours of a summer move to Leicester City for Cherries striker Callum Wilson.

Former Coventry City ace Wilson was on Wednesday linked with a switch to King Power Stadium by The Sun.

The tabloid claimed the England international "could be tempted" to join the Foxes and said Brendan Rodgers's side were "certain to invest heavily and strengthen".

Wilson, who is closing on a return from injury, "could cost up to £40million", according to The Sun.

However, speaking at a press conference ahead of Cherries' home clash with Manchester City, boss Howe swatted away the speculation.

Asked if there was anything in the rumours, he said: “From our side, absolutely nothing.

“Callum is committed to the team and the club and we hope to welcome him back (from injury) soon.”

Wilson, who has been sidelined since mid-January, is Cherries' top scorer this season with 12 goals in 24 appearances.

He was linked with a big-money move to Chelsea during December and January, while West Ham were also rumoured to be interested.

The 27-year-old had seen his stock rise after scoring on his England debut against the United States in November.
