Callum Wilson has in all honesty had an under-appreciated time with Newcastle United. The striker since his move from Bournemouth in 2020 has scored 18 goals in 41 appearances for the club.
The England international had appeared on the Footballer’s Football podcast recently. Wilson had revealed that the club should not buy new players just for the sake of it this summer.
“The new players that are going to come in need time to settle in to get their feet on the ground,” Callum Wilson said.
“There’s going to be players in the current squad that have not played (and) are going to want to move. That’s football. You don’t want to build too quickly. With financial fair play, I don’t think we have as much to pump into the club as everybody thinks. It’s about having a strategy but I don’t want to talk on that side of things.
“You want to keep evolving as a squad. But ultimately, you don’t want to just buy players for the sake (of it) because you’ve got money. You might not bring in the right players, you might bring in bad characters. You can bring in a player who’s meant to be a world-beater, it gets in the dressing room and upsets it. It’s about having a strategy in place.”
