Chris Wood's response when asked if he regrets joining Leeds United

The New Zealander had the opportunity to move elsewhere instead of Leeds this summer.

Leeds United forward Chris Wood says he's feeling good about playing for the 'great' Yorkshire club despite his side enduring a tough time in front of goal, according to BBC Radio Leeds.

Wood had the opportunity to join a number of different clubs over the summer but opted for the Whites.

And, asked about how he feels after joining Leeds and turning down other clubs, Wood spoke highly of the Elland Road outfit.

The New Zealander has scored six Leeds goals so far this season but has also received criticism from fans for some of his performances. 

The 23-year-old told BBC Radio Leeds: "I'm feeling good. It's still a great club. Playing in front of 26/27,000 fans every week means it is still a great place to come and play.

"I want to do well at this club and become a legend like a lot of strikers in the past. It's going to take a lot of hard work."

It's an admirable positive attitude from the New Zealander but, as many at Leeds have been shown over the last few seasons, a positive attitude alone isn't enough to get you over the line.

Opinion on the target man is divided among Leeds fans and Wood received huge criticism after his performance against Rotherham United on Saturday afternoon.

Both the 23-year-old and Leeds United will be looking to bounce back against Queens Park Rangers next weekend, with the west London side themselves hardly in the best of form.
