Burnley striker Wood undergoes Newcastle medical after release clause met

Burnley striker Chris Wood is undergoing a medical at Newcastle United.

The Magpies have reportedly met Wood’s £20m release clause.

Eddie Howe has moved quickly to replace top goalscorer Callum Wilson, who is sidelined for two months with a calf injury.

The New Zealand international features regularly for Burnley and the Lancashire club are disappointed to lose him at this stage of the season.

The Clarets are above Newcastle on goal difference as both clubs sit in the relegation zone.
