CHRIS WOOD is officially the most-expensive 30-year-old in Premier League history.
The former Burnley striker became the latest played to join 新城堡‘s revolution now working under the richest owners in world football.
Wood joined Eddie Howe’s squad in their battle to avoid relegation in a £25million deal.
In doing so, the New Zealander overtook ex-Arsenal defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos in commanding the highest fee for a 30-year-old in English history, 根据 Omar Chaudhuri.
Sokratis had cost the Gunners £18m on signing him from Borussia Dortmund in the 2018-19 季节, with Wood a solid £7m more expensive.
But Wood is not the most-expensive 30-year-old in world football history.
That honour goes to Miralem Pjanic, whose doomed 2020 move from Juventus cost Barcelona a staggering £55m.
The list of most-expensive transfer by age is dominated by 兵工厂, Chelsea and the two Manchester clubs.
