He was very up and down last season, falling behind Josh King's level IMHO.
I hope he can settle down and rediscover a consistent touch.
He's presumably one of the club's highest earners again with this, and as such would be expected to start regularly.
It was strange after his superb performance at Chelsea he seemed to lose if for a few months. He seemed to develop a habit of dribbling the ball out for throws in! Amazing what a goal drought does to a strikers confidence. Hopefully this contract and goal at Burnley will give him the confidence to start next season strongly
Pleased for both the club and Callum. He has been through a lot and this season will have the benefit of pre season training. Even when the goals eluded him he still worked extremely hard for the team.
I think it's excellent news. Had a rough patch last season but is definitely PL quality so I hope he can turn it in consistently next season.
I can see Mousset going out on loan for the year so he can get a solid 30+ starts under his belt in the Championship which would leave Defoe, King and Wilson battling out for the striker places with Brooks perhaps offering a different tactical set-up option.
At times his inclusion seemed to hinder King's game last season but a full preseason working together could make all the difference.
Great news for us and Cal. I know contracts dont mean as much as they used to but the fact Cal is happy to commit to us for another 4 years is extremely positive and suggests he is very settled at the club.
More than happy with this, still believe that he's gonna be a star. Didn't really get a preseason last year, started Prem career very very brightly, admittedly was inconsistent end of last season, on fire, then anonymous. The contract adds value and if it all goes wrong you know Championship sides will crawl through glass to sign him, if we can get 6 for Grabbs, even if he doesn;t perform we'll at least double that if we ever want to get rid, hoiping we don't

Great point about the sell-on potential should it not work out. I've seen more than one Championship fan wistfully mention Wilson as a potential signing in an 'if only but no chance' manner this summer.
