Leeds United Chris Wood is the subject of Premier League interest with the likes of West Ham United, Southampton and Stoke City vying for his services.

The former Leicester man has been a huge hit at Elland Road this term - finishing as the Championship's highest scorer with 27 goals in 44 outings.

Despite this, Garry Monk's side fell short of the play-off places after a wretched run in the final months of the season saw Fulham peep through into sixth position.

According to The Mirror, the New Zealand international is a likely candidate to leave Leeds this summer after his best-ever club season.

Wood failed to make much of an impression during his previous top-flight outing with Leicester - one goal in seven appearances, but he is nevertheless on the radar of mid-table clubs.

West Ham, Stoke City and Southampton are all weighing up bids for the 25-year-old, who is likely to cost in the region of £15m this summer.

Leeds United have lost key talents due to their failure to contest for top-flight promotion, and Wood could be the next in line as he seeks to progress further in his career.
