Wood tweets message to Leeds United fans after joining Burnley

Leeds United fans have had an enjoyable few months since Andrea Radrizzani took full control of the Championship club.

The owner has allowed new head coach Thomas Christiansen to bring in a handful of players to boost the team, and the Italian also kept his promise by re-purchasing Elland Road.

With regards to matters on the pitch, the Whites have started the season positively by winning two and drawing two.

As it stands, Leeds reside fifth in the Championship after four fixtures, but the mood around the Yorkshire club might not be as positive today, as they have announced the departure of Chris Wood to Burnley.

The Whites have pocketed £15m from the deal, according to The Mirror, but they stand to lose plenty in goals.

Last season, the New Zealand international found the back of the net 27 times in the second tier.

He had already got off the mark in this campaign by netting in a 3-2 win over Bolton Wanderers, but now the 25-year-old will be lining up in the Premier League for Burnley.

In a statement released by Radrizzani, the Leeds chairman revealed that the club were negotiating a new three-year contract for Wood, which included a buyout clause that was “lower than the fee we demanded for a transfer this summer”.

The clause would have come into play if Leeds failed to earn promotion to the top flight within a period of time.

Wood has now had his say on the situation, directly speaking to the fans on Twitter.
