Bournemouth injury news: star striker who has scored six goals this season ruled out for the remainder of the season

Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson has suffered an anterior cruciate ligament rupture and will be out for the remainder of the season, report the Daily Mail.

Wilson broke onto the scene with Coventry City in the 2013/14 campaign, finding the back of the net 22 times in 41 appearances. His good form earned him a move to Bournemouth, where he bagged 20 goals in his debut season.

The 24-year-old scored five times in his first 13 Premier League appearances, before suffering an injury that ruled him out for the remainder of the season. He has scored six so far this time around, but his misfortune appears to have struck again.

As per the Daily Mail, Wilson ruptured his ACL during Bournemouth training. He will require surgery to repair the damage and will subsequently miss the rest of the season. The Daily Mail believe that he is expected to be out for six months, so should be back in action soon into the 2017/18 season.
