EPL transfer: Chris Wood set for Leicester City exit

All Whites striker Chris Wood is set to leave Leicester City as the English Premier League side look to move him on.

Leicester Mercury report the club have accepted bids for the 23-year-old from Championship sides Leeds and Wolves who play in the second-tier of English football, rumoured to be in the region of £2.5 million (5.75m NZD).

Wood has previously played for Wolves manager Kenny Jackett when the two were at Millwall in 2012, but it is reported that Wood is close to agreeing a four-deal with the Yorkshire club.

The New Zealand international has struggled for game time with Leicester, managing just one start last season before going on loan to Championship side Ipswich.

He was deemed surplus to requirements after the arrival of Japanese striker Shinji Okazaki pushed him further down the pecking order.

Wood became the youngest ever All Whites captain when he took the arm band in a friendly 1-1 draw against China last November.
