Chris Wood and Charlie Horton take to Twitter during Leeds pre-season tour

The Leeds striker admits things will be tough in Austria, although both he and the goalkeeper remain upbeat.

Leeds United striker Chris Wood is in a positive frame of mind ahead of the Yorkshire side's pre-season tour of Austria - but admits it won't be easy.

Indeed, the 23-year-old took to Twitter after arriving in Austria and immediately commented on the heat, something that will make training much more difficult but at the same time far more rewarding.

The conditions were no doubt part of Uwe Rosler's plans ahead of Leeds' tour and Wood admits he won't enjoy the pre-season training.

The New Zealander arrived at Elland Road for a £3 million fee earlier this summer, price as quoted by the Yorkshire Evening Post, and has already looked sharp during friendly action.

Naturally, the point of pre-season tours is to make it as grueling on the body as possible and, as Wood says, the Leeds players will ultimately be the biggest beneficiaries.

Also taking to Twitter, meanwhile, was fellow summer signing Charlie Horton, the goalkeeper who has been busy in pre-season working alongside Marco Silvestri and now Ross Turnbull.

Next up for Leeds fixture-wise will be Eintracht Frankfurt, with the clubs playing their friendly on Tuesday night.
