Leeds United boss confirms offer for striker

Share

I've said before that Chris Wood is worth more to Leeds than whatever Leeds United gets for him in the transfer market, even if the amount is insane.

Kiwi goal-scoring machine Chris Wood is Premier League-bound.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche stepped up his interest in Wood following the £18 million sale of Andre Gray to Watford earlier this month.

The Whites will then have to set about replacing a man who scored a whopping 30 goals for the club last term, powering a playoff place push.

Wood confirmed that it has been his ambition to play at the highest level he can, and he said: " I don't feel it's right for me to play today".

"I wish the team all the best and hope the lads can pick up the 3 points". Being proactive. Because if it isn't, and Wood wants out, Leeds will struggle to score all season and a promotion might not be on the cards.

El Desmarque says Burnley's first offer wasn't attractive enough, either for Deportivo or Andone, who's very grateful for the chances his club have been giving him.

In a statement made via Twitter, the striker stated that he didn't feel right playing for Leeds until his playing future was resolved.

"He's a professional and if that's his thought we have to respect it".

I really hope this is the end of this talk.

Burnley have been pursuing the former Leicester City striker for some time now, and they have had their third bid accepted for the striker.
