Report: £16m bid tabled for Wood from another PL club, Leeds respond
By Harry Sykes
An unnamed Premier League club has tabled a £16million bid for Leeds United striker Chris Wood, according to a report.
The Sun claim the Championship promotion hopefuls have rejected the offer from the top flight outfit for their prize asset.
It is said that the latest mega-money bid has come from a team other than Burnley, who are attempting to prise Wood from Elland Road before the transfer window shuts.
As reported by Football Insider last night (Friday), Sean Dyche’s side have had a club-record bid of £12million rejected by Leeds for the New Zealand international.
The Sun do not name the latest big gun to join the race sig Wood, whose future has come under the microscope following his exploits last season, when his 30 goals in all competitions included 27 in the Championship.

The 25-year-old has begun the new campaign where he left off last season with a goal in Leeds’ opening day 3-2 win against Bolton last weekend.
He is expected to lead the line for Thomas Christiansen’s side in their Championship clash against Preston at Elland Road on Saturday.
Burnley are in the market for a new striker after selling Andre Gray to Premier League rivals Watford earlier this week for a fee of £18million.
In other Leeds United transfer news, Football Insider can exclusively reveal that Thomas Christiansen is lining up a move for a centre-back who is highly regarded and is captain of his club.
