Wolves were interested in Leicester City's Chris Wood, only to miss out to Leeds United.

Leeds United confirmed the signing of Leicester's Chris Wood on their official website, after seeing off competition from Wolves.

The New Zealand striker was a transfer target for the two Championship clubs, with the Leicester Mercury reporting earlier this week that bids were accepted from both sides for the striker.

Leeds pushed hardest, offering £3 million in total, handing Wood a four-year deal, able to convince the striker his future was at Elland Road despite the Wolves manager being Kenny Jackett, who had him on loan for a successful spell at Millwall in 2012.

Wolves were the strongest of the two sides last season, finishing strongly and only just missing out on the play-offs, finishing seventh on goal difference, while Leeds were 22 points further back in 15th place.

To that end Leeds were more in need of a striker like Chris Wood, with Wolves adding prolific Arsenal youngster Benik Afobe mid-season.

Wood may have considered the chance of getting more regular playing time at Leeds as a key factor in his decision, along with any extra financial stability Leeds were able to offer.

Wolves fans reacted with supposed indifference to Wood's snub, describing him as over-priced and not what they need.
