Former West Brom academy striker Chris Wood joins Burnley for £15m

Peter Crouch of Stoke City FC celebrates scoring a goal during the Premier League match between Southampton and Stoke City at St Mary's Stadium Burnley close in on Chris Wood signing as captain Tom Heaton backs striker to thrive at Turf Moor

Though an official fee has not been confirmed by either side, it is thought that Leeds have pocketed around £15 million for Wood.

19 goals in 53 games across 16 months helped Wood secure a regular place in the first team, duly helping Leicester achieve promotion to the Premier League in May 2014.

He had travelled with the rest of the Leeds squad to Sunderland for their televised Championship fixture on Saturday evening and remained at the team hotel until kick-off at 5.30pm, when he was given permission to travel to the north west.

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

Burnley have broken their club transfer record to bring in Chris Woods from Leeds, with the fee involved reported to be £15million (plus add-ons). He struggled a bit at Villa but got another Premier League move (again for around £6m) when he moved to Middlesbrough.

"That's something the manager and staff work on a lot".

And this is not the only pink vehicle he owns; the colour is named Fux Fuchsia, and was originally created for him by Rolls-Royce. White Alcantara floor mats, again with white stitching, complete the theme.

"It's certainly a good environment to be in and one that a lot of people excel in".

As a result, Wells is being linked with a return to the Championship via a number of clubs.

Whoever arrives through the gates at Elland Road before the end of the transfer window, Leeds will be hoping to get a deal through as quickly as possible with inexperienced Caleb Ekuban and 25-year-old Souleymane Doukara the only two out-and-out forwards at the club.

Do you ever have any question about anything you wish to ask and get answer? "I've never started a Premier League game and this is what I want to do", he added. "In a couple of days we will have more information".

"As I said in the changing room, there is no-one above Leeds".

Gestede has endured a hard time at the Riverside since joining the club in January from Aston Villa with the 28-year-old scoring just twice in 20 league appearances, although 13 of those have come from the bench.
