West Ham and Southampton among clubs chasing £20m Leeds United star

Leeds paid just £3m to sign Wood from Leicester and banking a £15m to £20m fee for the New Zealand global would represent a big profit for the Elland Road outfit.

Chris Wood's effect and importance to the Leeds United side can not be underestimated when it is compared to the efforts of last season.

And his impressive goalscoring form has not gone unnoticed with the Daily Mirror claiming West Ham and Stoke are interested in securing his signature.

The Championship giants, who are desperate for a return to the Premier League after a 13-year absence, are now looking to get their house in order off the field, with co-owner Andrea Radrizzani confirming he will complete a 100 per cent buy-out of club imminently.

Did you see Cristiano Ronaldo miss an absolute sitter against Celta Vigo?
He said: "We have to take it one day at a time . he is trained using the indoor facilities, but every day he gets better". Real Madrid moved to the top of Spain's Liga Santander on Wednesday night following a 4-1 win away to Celta Vigo.

Southampton could look to bring in another forward with Shane Long and Jay Rodriguez rumoured to be heading out, Stoke City are in the market for a new attacker and Swansea are looking to replace Borja Baston to give Fernando Llorente some competition.

Wood has two years left on his contract at Elland Road and was a transfer target for the Chinese Super League in January, but it seems more likely he will move to the Premier League this summer.

Asked about his future in the aftermath of this season's finale at Wigan Athletic, Wood said: "I have been working hard all season to do what we have been doing and hopefully getting promoted to the Premier League".
