Whilst Leeds have agreed to buy Ryan Hall for the princely sum of £150,000, Leicester City may be about to pull off a major coup by landing young West Brom and Millwall striker Chris Wood.
Wood, who has been pulling up trees this season in the Championship for Millwall, proved his worth to Old Big Gob Warnock when he netted the Lions' winner against Leeds. He would appear to fit the bill perfectly for Leeds, being strong, mobile, young and an ideal alternative to Bechio. And at £2m, he shouldn't break even the GFH Capital bank.
Wood has netted 11 times in 19 appearances this season, credentials which should encourage all ambitious teams in the Championship to run the rule over him. Frankly, I'm surprised West Brom are entertaining a sale because the lad looks to have genuine potential.
It's a doubly clever move by Leicester as Pearson's squad is strengthened at the expense of play off rivals Millwall. The weakening of the Lions is good news for Warnock but Leeds fans might be wondering why this prime opportunity has been missed. Perhaps the new owners are trying to do it on the cheap after all.
