The 23-year-old has dropped down a league for a four-year deal with Leeds.

The New Zealand striker helped Leicester City gain promotion to the Premier League in 2013-14.

He says he's excited by this new chapter in his career and hopes to take club the Premiere League.

Wood started his career in England with West Bromwich Albion and had loan spells with Barnsley, Brighton, Birmingham City, Bristol City and Millwall before Leicester City signed him for £2m in January 2013.

He scored 14 goals in 53 league appearances for the King Power Stadium side.
