Newcastle United have signed New Zealand striker Chris Wood from

Burnley for £25m.

The 30-year-old has agreed a contract at St James’ Park until the end of the

2023-24 season.

Magpies boss Eddie Howe targeted attacking reinforcements after Callum
Wilson was ruled out for eight weeks with a calf injury.

It had been thought Burnley would not sell the player to a Premier League

relegation rival, but Newcastle triggered the release clause in his Clarets

contract.

Wood, who was Burnley’s record signing when he arrived from Leeds for

£15m in 2017, scored 53 goals in 165 games for the Clarets, including three

in 17 league appearances this season.

The move leaves Burnley boss Sean Dyche with a major problem after losing

one of his most experienced forward players.

The Turf Moor side and Newcastle are level on 11 points in 18th and 19th

place in the top flight, although Burnley have two games in hand.

Wood could make his Newcastle debut in Saturday’s home game with

Watford, who are two points above the Magpies in 17th.
