Chris Wood

Chris Wood


According to Sky Sports, Leicester striker Chris Wood is in demand after Wolves had a bid accepted for him at the start of the week.

The 22 year old Kiwi seems likely to face stiff competition for a place at Leicester now with the Foxes having signed Leonardo Ulloa from Brighton as well as being heavily linked with Troy Deeney - let's hope that they can sort that one before the weekend.

Wood only joined Leicester in 2013 from West Brom after the lad had been out on loan to a plethora of clubs, Barnsley, Brighton, Birmingham and Millwall and finally Leicester before Nigel Pearson made the deal permanent.

Wood is 6'3' and made 45 appearances for The Foxes in their promotion season and scored 11 goals. He has played for New Zealand 34 times and scored 12 goals.

Sky Sports reported last night that despite Wolves having an offer accepted for the player, the likes of Fulham, Derby and Norwich are all now interested in him.

Wood will know Kenny Jackett from his loan spell at Millwall in 2012 where he made 19 appearances and scored 11 goals for The Lions, form that has persuaded Jackett to try to do a deal.

Wolves have also reportedly held talks with the player, so you'd have to assume they are in the driving seat on this one.
