Newcastle have moved a step closer to signing Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson in a £20m deal.
Wilson was reportedly flown from the south coast to Tyneside in Mike Ashley’s private helicopter and will undergo medicals on Monday before signing on the dotted line.

Once done, the deal will be the third-highest transfer ever paid by Newcastle.
The 28-year-old is one of the many stars set to leave the Cherries, who were relegated last season.
Aston Villa were equally interested in Wilson but withdrew from the race as the England international was keen on joining with Steve Bruce.
