Callum Wilson stated he’s not tempted to quit for a bigger club in the Premier League while Bournemouth striker was linked with a switch to Chelsea in the winter window.

But the England international insists a high-profile move does not interest him if regular match action is not guaranteed.

“I signed a long-term contract, I’m happy down there – I’m playing football,” said the 27-year-old ace who was talking to the Football for Peace initiative dinner this week. “I never want to see myself not playing at Bournemouth even, being on the bench and things like that.

“Any player has aspirations to play for their country, like I’ve managed to do thankfully, and play in the Champions League – different big occasions and big stages.

“I’ve been linked [with big clubs] from a young age when I’m doing well – so I tend not to buy into it.”

Callum Wilson has suffered career-threatening injuries in recent years as the forward damaged the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee back in 2015.

The Englishman then ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee only two years later, and the striker says it is important to stay mentally strong during lengthy spells on the sidelines.

chelsea continue their search for No.9 since Gonzalo Higuain has failed to adapt the Premier League and only the love from Maurizio Sarri is helping the former Argentina international to retain his spot in the starting lineup.
