Leeds United fans need to prepare themselves for a long summer of transfer speculation over the future of Chris Wood.

The rumblings have already started, with The Mirror today stating that a host of Premier League clubs were ready to make a move this summer for the Whites attacking talisman.

Wood has been an essential player for the Elland Road outfit over the last 12 months and topped the Championship scoring charts despite Garry Monk’s men missing out on the play-offs.

It is only natural that the New Zealand international will be linked with a move to a Premier League club given his form, with the former Leicester City man showing that he has what it takes to star in English football’s top flight.

However, Wood is a down-to-earth man that has already committed to the club, with recent comments stipulating that he is motivated to fire the Yorkshire side towards promotion next term.

While a massive offer could always force Leeds’ hand, the striker himself appears keen to stay at Elland Road and as such the predictable ongoing rumours over his future should be taken with a pinch of salt.

What Andrea Radrizzani must do now is convince Wood that Leeds are a club destined for the Premier League by rehiring Monk, providing transfer funds to the manager and in turn continuing the feel-good factor around this historic team.
