Leeds United former star against selling their star striker

Leeds United striker Chris Wood is close to agreeing to a deal to take him to Burnley, according to numerous outlets including the BBC.

The 25-year-old started his career in his native New Zealand before moving to West Brom in 2009 as a 16-year-old, but only appeared 21 times for the Baggies in a four-year stay at the club.

Manager Thomas Christiansen reacted to the absence of the Championship's top scorer in 2016-17 by handing a full league debut Ekuban, who joined from Italian club Chievo earlier in the window. "I only want players who are 100 percent with the team", he told Sky Sports. "Today was proof again that we are not winning games because of the individual player, but as the team".

Wood, a 25-year-old New Zealand global who has netted 20 times for his country, has been on the books at Elland Road since 2015, when he joined from Leicester City.

Whilst that could prove to be a good signing for the Peacock's, here at FLW we believe that Christiansen should turn the Ross McCormack rumours into reality.

Although I am overjoyed to have our sovereign leader back, his speech has left me wanting to say the least. Buhari's return follows on the heels of growing agitation for clarity on his health status.

Nevertheless, Christiansen still respected the Kiwi's decision to depart to England's top flight football division.

Wood sat out his scheduled match for Leeds United against Sunerland in the second-tier English Championship because of what he says would be a conflict while he discusses shifting clubs.

Wood pulled out of the Stadium of Light fixture shortly beforehand as he puts the finishing touches to a transfer to Premier League club Burnley.

"I personally hope he will do fine".
