Leeds United strongly backed to keep hold of star striker

In what will be good news for Leeds fans, popular bookmakers Skybet have listed the probability of the Whites keeping star striker Chris Wood at 1/3.

The New Zealand international Wood played a key role in helping Leeds finish in 7th position on the Championship standings this season and was the overall top scorer in the league with 27 goals.

Due to the New Zealand internationals desire to score goals in the Premiership as well as Leeds’ failure to progress to the Premier League this season, many had anticipated that Wood may be leaving Elland Road this summer.

Considering the form that Wood displayed last season, there are bound to be clubs inquiring about potentially signing him next season.

According to the Sky Bet odds though, Leeds will have a good chance of keeping their star forward ahead of next season. Should the 25-year-old Wood remain at Leeds, it will surely bring joy to many fans of the Yorkshire club.
