Leeds United are nearing a deal to sign Leicester City's Chris Wood.
Leeds United are closing in on a deal to sign Leicester City's Chris Wood, according to BBC West Yorkshire.
New Zealand striker Wood found opportunities limited for the Premier League side last season and is surplus to requirements.
Leicester last week signed Japanese international forward Shinji Okazaki.
Wood would become Leeds' fourth permanent signing, following Sol Bamba, Lee Erwin and Charlie Taylor.

Wood is still just 23-years-old and could expect to become a regular starter at Leeds, in a division in which he has a proven goalscoring record.
£2.5 million would be a high investment in a player by Leeds standards in recent seasons and be a major statement of intent by owner Massimo Cellino of his commitment to the club securing promotion next season.
