Ekuban replaces Burnley-bound Wood in lone striker role

Chris Wood has been linked with a possible move to Burnley from Leeds United in recent times as according to Yorkshire Post, the Premier League club has evinced interest in capturing the striker.

He made seven PL appearances, scoring one goal, for Leicester City as the Foxes staved off relegation the season before Leicester shocked the world and won the league the year after he left.

Jansson's form last season helped Leeds challenge for the play-offs, and he has once again set lofty ambitions this year, claiming that the Whites are on the verge of something special.

Leeds manager Thomas Christiansen regards Wood as an important player for the team, with guaranteed first-team football.

The 26-year-old missed Leeds' opening two fixtures of the season through suspension, a 3-2 victory over Bolton Wanderers and 4-1 victory over Port Vale in the Carabao Cup.

The rumors surrounding Wood and the inevitable panic spending by Premier League clubs at the close of the summer transfer window will test the resolve of the club, Victor Orta, and Chris Wood himself.

Burnley have been on the lookout for a new striker since selling Andre Gray to Watford for £18.5million and it seems they have finally got their man.

The Leeds striker has reportedly agreed to a £15 million ($NZ26.3m) deal to join Burnley, according to United Kingdom publication The Mirror.
