Burnley sign Leeds United's Chris Wood on four-year deal

Wood spent two seasons at Leeds and after scoring so many goals last season, will surely be missed.

There will be no shortage of clubs interested in signing the Bermuda worldwide so the Whites may have to move fast if they want to secure a deal.

"My ambition has been to play in the Premier League for years".

"Coming here I feel I've got a proper opportunity to do that".

Leeds United chairman Andrea Radrizzani has admitted that his club were forced into selling New Zealand global Chris Wood in this summer's transfer window. From the moment you walk through the door every day, it's geared towards that.

No Powerball Winner, Jackpot Jumps to $650 Million For Wednesday
A $2.00 bet could bring home $500-M+ in the Powerball lottery's 5th-largest jackpot in a 25-year history that is up on Saturday. According to lottery officials, the jackpot for Wednesday's drawing is now a $650 million annuity worth $411.7 million cash.

"However the player's preference was to leave Leeds United and as he only had one year left on his contract after this season we had to protect the club and ensure we did not sell Chris below our valuation. If it is him, and he does get through the door, I'm sure it'll be the same".

By the way, should you be a Leeds fan who has shelled out to get Wood's name and number on the back of your 2017/18 shirt, the club have announced that you'll be able to exchange it for a blank replica at the club shop...

"The squad has done fantastically over the last couple of years to put themselves in the position they are now. I've got goals and dreams that I want to achieve and it starts here".

Leeds boss Thomas Christiansen said after his side had beaten Sunderland that Wood was on the move.

Will Chris Wood score goals in the Premier League? "I don't have anything against him, he's a good guy, a good player and he's given until now what I expected of him".
