Wilson: I'm not a one season wonder

Wilson: I'm not a one season wonder

AFC Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson is determined to prove that he isn't just a one hit wonder following his transfer from Coventry City.

Wilson came through the youth team system at Coventry and scored 21 goals in 37 League One appearances last season for his home town club.

The 22 year old, who was the subject of a lot of interest from Championship clubs since the end of last season opted against a move to recently relegated Premier League side Norwich City in favour of signing a four year contract with the Cherries.

Wilson had been a summer long target for the Cherries following the sale of last seasons top goalscorer Lewis Grabban to Norwich City.

Grabban set a new record for most goals in the second tier of English football for AFC Bournemouth with 22 goals last season, before Norwich triggered a £3million release clause in his contract.

Wilson told the Daily Echo...

'...I want to prove I am not just a one-season wonder, as people could label me. My career has been hampered by injury so it was good to finally get three-quarters of a season under my belt. It is about progressing as a player and I am looking forward to a full season.

"I feel I am only going to get better playing with better players and on better pitches. I feel the manager here will progress me and help me kick on with the team to the next level. He will give me a platform and it will be up to me to take it."

"I know Lewis (Grabban) and Yann Kermorgant had a great partnership here and I am a similar player to Lewis although we have different strengths. But I am not here to fill anybody`s boots and I am my own person. I am here to play, to do well and to try to help the team get into the Premier League."
