Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson is confident the club have the right foundations and the ‘key components’ to be successful in the Premier League for a long time.

The Cherries have been the success story over the six years, having climbed up from League 2 back in 2009 to the English top-flight where they currently sit now.

Winning the Championship last season topped everything off for the club and manager Eddie Howe is quickly becoming one of the best managers in the game.

It will certainly be a big test for Bournemouth in the Premier League this year but the summer arrivals of Tyrone Mings, Sylvain Distin, Artur Boruc, Adam Federici, Josh King and Christian Atsu have added more belief to the squad.

A further boost was handed to the club after Wilson rejected interest from a host of teams to put pen-to-paper on a new four-year contract at Dean Court.

The England U-21 international has signed until the summer of 2019 and he is already targeting a successful future in the top-flight with Bournemouth.

“I signed (from Coventry City) thinking we would get to the Premier League in the next few years and we did it in the first season,” he told Cherries Player. “There’s no reason, at this moment in time, why anyone would want to leave because we are in the Premier League and have a great manager, who is young and wants to be successful.

“We have a great squad here, so we have all the key components to be successful in the Premier League and hopefully we can achieve that.”

Bournemouth are priced at 6.00 to finish bottom of the Premier League while they are 2.50 favourites to end up as the top promoted club.
