Callum Wilson’s move to Newcastle move may be completed within the next 24 hours, according to Sky Sports’ Keith Downie.
In a tweet shared in the last few moments, Downie claims that Wilson will travel up to Tyneside ‘later today’ to finalise personal terms, with a medical expected to take place tomorrow if and when wages are agreed on.
Here’s what Downie’s had to say on Sunday lunchtime:
So, it looks like all parties are moving swiftly are our £20million bid was accepted just this morning, with it seeming as though a deal could be completed in the next 24 hours.
Clearly, Steve Bruce is eager to have Wilson settled into the squad ASAP as we prepare for our opening fixture against West Ham next Saturday.
What was looking like an extremely bleak start to the season is now shaping up to be a potentially exciting one – especially if Wilson is joined by the likes of Ryan Fraser and Jamal Lewis.
Hopefully there’s no issue with wages – I doubt there will be if a medical is already being booked in – and the England International hits the ground running in a black and white shirt!
