Not a surprise given the events over the weekend, Chris Wood is now officials a Burnley player. The striker joins the Premier League side for an initial £15 million, rising to around £18 million.
Burnley were succesful with their third bid for the striker after Andrea Radrizzani turned down the first two, starting at £12 million. Wood made it quite clear that his head wasn’t in Leeds anymore by refusing to play for the club on Saturday night in Sunderland, with the deal to join Burnley all but agreed by that stage.
Andrea Radrizzani has said that fans can expect the money to be re-invested in the playing squad and was disappointed by the departure. Wood also said the club have been trying to offer him a new deal for over a month, and he was in talks but when Burnley came calling he was always set on heading to the Premier League.
