OFFICIAL: Newcastle sign Chris Wood

 

Newcastle United have completed the signing of New Zealand striker Chris Wood for 25m Euros from Burnley. 
Wood has signed a two-and-a-half year contract and arrives in time



 Wood has signed a two-and-a-half year contract and arrives in time to feature in Saturday's Premier League clash with Watford at St. James' Park. 

 The 30-year-old becomes the Magpies' second signing of the January transfer window following the arrival of England international full-back Kieran Trippier from Atl├ętico Madrid. 

 Wood will wear the number 20 shirt - the first number he wore for his country. 

The Auckland-born forward has scored 27 goals for the All Whites in 60 international appearances. 

 Chris Wood said: "This is a very exciting opportunity for me and I'm delighted to be a Newcastle United player.

 "I have played at St. James' Park a few times and it's an amazing place, so to have the chance to represent this club with those incredible supporters behind me and my team-mates is very special. 

 "The club and manager have been first class during this process, and I really can't wait to get onto the pitch and repay the faith they have in me, especially with a vital part of the season ahead of us." 

 Newcastle United head coach Eddie Howe said: "Chris is an important signing for us at a crucial time and I'm very pleased we have been able to move quickly and bring him here. 

 "He is a very dangerous attacking threat, has a physicality and character that I really like, and he has vast experience in the Premier League. He will be a great fit for us."
