Newcastle United retain an interest in Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson.

However, the Chronicle is reporting that the Magpies will have to smash their record transfer fee to bring the Cherries’ forward to St James’ Park.

The Toon’s current record transfer fee is the £16m they forked out to buy Michael Owen from Real Madrid in 2005.

The £20m-rated forward has scored six goals in 18 appearances for Bournemouth this season.

Jordan Ayew

Aston Villa forward Jordan Ayew is set for a move to the Chinese Super League.

The Birmingham Mail are reporting Shanghai SIPG have registered an interest in the £12m-rated striker, with other Far East clubs also keen.

The huge wages will likely to appeal to the Ghanaian international who took a pay cut after Villa slumped to relegation from the top flight last season.

Ayew has scored 10 goals in all competitions for Villa since joining in summer 2015.
