Leeds reject £12m bid from Burnley for Chris Wood

Leeds reject £12m bid from Burnley for Chris Wood”

The Clarets boss is thought to be in the hunt for another frontman following Andre Gray's £18.5m move to Watford earlier this week, leaving Dyche with a considerable budget to find a replacement at Turf Moor.

According to writer Phil Hay of the Yorkshire Post, via Twitter, manager Sean Dyche sees Wood as the ideal man to step into Gray's shoes as Burnley target survival in the Premier League.

Wood is one of the best players in the current Leeds squad and will be an instrumental figure in their quest to finish in the top six of the Championship this season.

Since signing for Leeds in July 2015, Wood has made 86 appearances and scored 44 goals for the club in all competitions.

Sources indicate that Leeds are insistent on keeping the New Zealand vice-captain, so they can make a more concerted push for promotion back to the Premier League after narrowly missing out on the play-offs in the 2016/17 campaign. This tally was enough for him to win the Championship Golden Boot.

Stoke City and West Ham United were linked with Wood earlier in the summer transfer window but Leeds look ready to to ward off further bids for him.

It is not clear whether £20m is Leeds' pain threshold to sell Wood at, or what the striker's attitude to the Whites rejecting offers from Premier League clubs is.
