The Newcastle United and former England hotshot’s £230,000 supercar was spotted by traffic wardens on a double yellow line.
The 30-year-old striker had left his flash Urus motor on double yellow lines in the upmarket Jesmond suburb of the city.
The parking warden was seen looking at the registration of the sporty SUV – which has a 0-60 of 3.6 seconds.

Callum Wilson, pictured, who is a striker for Newcastle United, has been injured since December. He was photographed about a mile from the club’s St James’ Park stadium
He then issued a ticket and put it on the windscreen of Wilson’s 190mph car.
The forward – out with a calf injury since December – had left his motor near shops and cafes just a mile from St James’ Park. The warden gave him the ticket at 2:40pm last Tuesday afternoon. It’s believed the ticket would cost upto £70 with a discount if paid within a fortnight.
An onlooker said: ‘I was just walking down Acorn Road in Jesmond, near Newcastle and I saw the traffic warden looking at the car.
‘I instantly knew this was Callum Wilson’s car as it’s very distinctive and I have seen him in this car a number of times.
‘I just observed the warden giving the car the ticket. And Wilson didn’t come back for at least 20 minutes when I was there. It’s not like he was dashing into a shop for 30 seconds – he left his car on a double yellow line where there are regular wardens.
Wilson signed for the Magpies in December 2020 for a fee of £20million from Bournemouth.
He has been capped four times by the Three Lions scoring one goal.
Newcastle United has been approached for comment.
