Leeds slap £15m price tag on in-demand Wood – reports

Leeds United have valued star striker Chris Wood at £15million in an effort to put off potential suitors, according to reports.

The New Zealand international is in top form currently, having scored three goals in his last two matches and 14 in 25 Championship appearances.

ESPN claims that Leeds have slapped a £15million price tag on the striker in an attempt to ward off interest from Premier League sides West Ham and Sunderland.

Sources close to the player have told ESPN that although there is interest from the two clubs, the new valuation has left them unsure whether to pursue Wood.

Sunderland are struggling for goals this season and have Jermain Defoe to thank for 12 out of their 20 goals so far this campaign.

West Ham, meanwhile, have become frustrated in their efforts to sign Defoe and Scott Hogan from Brentford as they look to replace Simone Zaza, whose loan spell came to an end this month.
