After suffering relegation with the Cherries, the four-cap England international has now completed his return to the Premier League.
Villa, who stayed up on the final day of the season thanks to a 1-1 draw with West Ham United, will look to make some improvements to their squad and it expected that boss Dean Smith is keen to add a striker to bolster his attacking options.
The likes of Wesley, Mbwana Samatta, and Keinan Davis all struggled to find consistent goalscoring form last season and Wilson was linked to the Midlands club.
Reacting to news of Wilson’s move to the north east, fans gave the following opinion with some questioning Smith’s intentions during the summer transfer window as the new season fast approaches.
I still can’t get my head around we will pay 20m for him…… But still won’t pay that for benrahma 🤔🤔

Wondering what the board are doing? Week before the season starts and we’ve signed a right back a position we didn’t really need ?

Good player but his heart is set on Newcastle so leave him be I’m a Watkins fan anyway

No point continuing if player has made it clear he prefers the other club.
