Leeds United favourites to sign Celtic star

Betvictor have listed Leeds as 6/1 favorites along with Wolves to sign Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths. Griffiths has featured 36 times in all competitions for the Bhoys this season, bagging 17 goals with five of the strikes coming in Champions League qualification.

Leeds may be looking for a replacement for striker Chris Wood, who is expected to join a Premier League club ahead of next season.

Due to his experience, Griffiths will be a good choice of replacement. Kemar Roofe has not managed to score continuously while Marcus Antonsson has struggled to break into the first team.

It remains to be seen whether Griffiths would prefer a fresh challenge in England next season or stay at Parkhead and continue to fight for a place in the Celtic lineup.

The 26-year-old was recently visibly upset with manager Brendan Rodgers after being substituted during the Bhoys 5-1 thumping of Patrick of Thistle last week, though he has since apologized.
