Newcastle United have completed the signing of New Zealand striker Chris Wood from Burnley.
The 30-year-old, who joins for an undisclosed fee, has agreed a contract until the end of the 2023-24 season.
Magpies boss Eddie Howe targeted attacking reinforcements after Callum Wilson was ruled out for eight weeks with a calf injury.
Chris Wood is Newcastle’s second signing this month following Kieran Trippier’s arrival from Atletico Madrid.
It had been thought Burnley would not sell the player to a Premier League relegation rival.
But Newcastle triggered the release clause in his Clarets contract.
“This is a very exciting opportunity for me and I’m delighted to be a Newcastle United player,” Wood said.
“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 on to the pitch and repay the faith they have in me, especially with a vital part of the season ahead of us.”
Wood was Burnley’s record signing when he arrived from Leeds for £15m in 2017.
He scored 53 goals in 165 games for the Clarets, including three in 17 league appearances this season.
