Leeds United have signed Chris Wood.

Leeds United have signed Chris Wood, the club have confirmed via their official website.

The striker signs on a four-year deal, for a fee officially undisclosed, but believed to be in the region of £3 million, as reported by the Yorkshire Evening Post.

Wood himself appears delighted with the transfer from Leicester City, taking to Twitter to express his satisfaction.

The striker is the club's most expensive signing in a decade, with Leeds seeing off competition from fellow Championship side Wolves to clinch the deal.

Wood has been a perennial loanee at Leicester, always on the fringes of the first team, and will hope to finally get a chance to play regular football at Leeds United.

He is the club's fourth summer deal, following Charlie Horton, Lee Erwin and Sol Bamba.

The 23-year-old is a New Zealand international who has even captained his country. His addition comes in time to go straight into pre-season training, ahead of the club's first friendly match on July 11.
