Championship

Leeds see key man leave as window closes in on final week

Our Leeds fans here in the Transfer Tavern are pleased with how their season has started this year with them unbeaten in the Championship so far.

The men from Elland Road have won two and drawn two up until this point in the second tier with them recording a fine 2-0 win away at Sunderland at the weekend.

Certainly, then, there is plenty to be excited about at the moment though some are a bit down that Chris Wood has joined Burnley today.

The news broke over the weekend that it was looking likely that the New Zealand international would be on his way to the Clarets and now it has been confirmed that he has joined the Premier League club.

Indeed, the likes of Phil Hay on Twitter have reported that the deal has gone through and now it remains to be seen who Leeds can get in before the window shuts with some decent money getting earned.

Meanwhile, it’ll also be interesting to see how Wood adapts to the Premier League.

Landlord’s Verdict

Wood is a powerful striker and could do well at Burnley but he had started the season fairly slowly with Leeds this time around.

For sure, he may have been distracted by all the speculation and so now it remains to be seen just how all parties get on from here on out.

Thoughts, Leeds fans? Let us know below!
