Chris Wood Close to Joining EPL Money Power Side

Newcastle United is close to completing the signing of Burnley striker Chris Wood. Magpies boss Eddie Howe has been targeting a new forward after Callum Wilson was ruled out for eight weeks with a calf injury he sustained during their 1-1 draw with Manchester United. It had been thought the Clarets would not sell 30-year-old Wood to a Premier League relegation rival, but a good offer could make the club release the player.

However, the New Zealand international reportedly has a release clause in his Burnley contract, which Newcastle United have now triggered. Chris Wood was Burnley’s record signing when he arrived from Leeds United for £15m in 2017. He has scored three goals in 17 league games this season and is now set to have a medical at Newcastle.

The move leaves Clarets manager Sean Dyche with a significant problem after losing one of his most experienced forward players. In the English Premier League table, the Turf Moor side and Newcastle are level on 11 points in 18th and 19th place.
