Burnley officially sign All Whites striker Chris Wood in club-record deal

Leeds striker Chris Wood has been signed by Burnley, with SkySports reporting a four-year deal has been agreed.

The Clarets did not disclose the sum paid to Leeds but confirmed it was more than their previous record, around £13million for Robbie Brady from Norwich this year.

"The possibility to go to a Premier League club is interesting for him, and probably the money is also much better", he said.

However, Wood impressed Leicester City and was eventually signed by the Foxes in January 2013.

He returns to the Premier League after brief spells with West Bromwich Albion and Leicester City. However, 13 goals in 37 appearances during a stellar season helped to ease the weight on his shoulders.

The contract extension was said to be for a new three-year deal.

The New Zealand striker rose to prominence by finishing as the Championship's leading scorer with 27 goals last season and will now get his chance to shine in the top flight under Sean Dyche.

Thomas Christiansen's side are on the lookout for a new centre-forward before the close of the transfer market, following the departure of star man Chris Wood to Burnley earlier today.

Boro are said to be reluctant to let the Benin worldwide leave with the former Blackburn man playing in all four of Garry Monk's sides league games to date so far this campaign, including a victor in a 1-0 victory over newly-promoted Sheffield United. "Victor is in Italy with the chairman and I got some news that they're working good and we will soon have some news".

"The manager has given me a lot of confidence and backed me to bring me here, which is what you want". Talking to new players coming in over the years, it might not be the case at a lot of places. "If it is him, and he does get through the door, I'm sure it'll be the same".
