Newcastle Close To Signing This Premier League Star Striker

Chris Wood is undergoing a medical at Newcastle as he finalises personal terms for a £25m move from Burnley.
Newcastle hope to complete a deal for the striker on Wednesday after triggering a release clause with a sizeable bid to secure a replacement for Callum Wilson, who has been ruled out for two months with a calf injury.

Wood has been a key player for relegation rivals Burnley, who sit just above Newcastle on goal difference in the bottom three, but the 30-year-old had a clause in his contract allowing him to leave Turf Moor if a specific fee is tabled.

The New Zealand international, with three goals for Burnley this season, has vast experience of playing in the Premier League and could slot into the starting line-up as Newcastle prepare for a crucial home match with Watford on Saturday.
