Chris Wood explains what's impressed him about the Leeds United squad

New Leeds United signing Chris Wood holds no doubt over the potential of the team he's about to play for.

Leeds United new boy Chris Wood explained to Radio Yorkshire that the team’s potential is the main reason he made the move to Elland Road.

Wood was recently unveiled as Uwe Rosler’s latest signing following the opening of the transfer window and he’s explained that the general outlook of the side Rosler is creating, has convinced him he’s made the right choice.

“It’s not just me, it’s the whole team and that’s why I came here – The team is good, young and hungry and that’s something to build on for the future but right now, I feel the club are ready to kick on,” he told Radio Yorkshire.

Leeds United’s biggest strength

The youthful outlook of the team is arguably Leeds United’s biggest strength because of the options it gives the manager.

Rosler has a good core of players to draw on in all positions, with a youth system, which is well placed to continue the supply line of talented youngsters into the first team.

It also suggests longevity because the core group of players in the Leeds squad will grow up together, play more and more together and will learns the precise ins and outs of each other and the best system for the team to use.

Leeds are ready to kick on

Despite one or two more questionable decisions from Massimo Cellino behind the scenes at the club, Leeds are well placed to push on next season.

Leeds have done well to improve their squad options and they have the infrastructure to be able to cope with a long season of competing in and around the top six places in the Championship.

There’s no reason why the club can’t significantly move forward after last season.
