West Ham rebuffed with £25m double bid for Bournemouth stars Wilson, Ritchie

West Ham United have had an offer for Callum Wilson and Matt Ritchie turned down by Bournemouth.

Sky Sports reports that the Cherries have rejected a double bid of £25million for the striker and winger.

Wilson, 24, impressed the Hammers when scoring a hat-trick in Bournemouth's 4-3 win at Upton Park in August.

26-year-old Scotland international Ritchie has emerged on the radar of the East London club following an impressive debut Premier League season with the south coast club.

However, Bournemouth are in no mood to sell, especially as Wilson will be back next season after a lengthy absence with a knee injury, and opted to turn down the proposal from West Ham.
