Chris Wood will make a permanent transfer from Burnley to Newcastle United. The New Zealander is to undergo obligatory medical tests in the coming hours before signing a contract with a new employer – said John Percy from The Telegraph.
The “Magpie” team began looking for a strengthening of the offensive line practically from the moment it fell into the hands of the Saudi Investment Fund. As a result, there were many high-profile names associated with the move to St James’ Park in the media’s speculation.
Newcastle United will not decide, at least for now, to bring in one of the valuable players, as they intend to bet on Chris Wood’s Premier League limitation.
This information was provided by John Percy from “The Telegraph”, who a few days ago also argued that “Magpies” started trying to cooperate with the Burnley player, and now believes that the team from St James’ Park has reached an agreement relatively quickly with all interested parties and any formalities will be completed any day.
Fabrizio Romano adds to the situation that Newcastle United will spend around £ 20 million (over EUR 23 million) to bring in the 30-year-old, who in the ongoing competition has only … three times in the list of goalscorers in 21 matches played.
Such statistics are not knocking you on your knees, but as you can see, manager Eddie Howe has an idea to use the New Zealand representative in the fight for relegation in the Premier League.
Wood will be the second Winter Magpie buff. Before him, he joined the ranks of the English team Kieran Trippier.
