Chris Wood Will Love Culture At Club - Burnley Star

Share

Burnley have signed New Zealand global striker Chris Wood from Leeds United on a four-year deal.

Heaton remembers Wood for the goal the Kiwi striker scored against him for Leicester City in a Championship match against Burnley in 2014.

Leeds United chairman Andrea Radrizzani has admitted that his club were forced into selling New Zealand global Chris Wood in this summer's transfer window.

Wood will wear the number 11 shirt at Burnley and arrives after Sean Dyche's men sold last season's first-choice striker Andre Gray to Watford in a reported £18.5m deal earlier this month. One thing I can say is that every player loves the culture we've got at the football club.

Sean Dyche has splashed out a club-record fee thought to be around £15million for the New Zealand worldwide.

"If we get him in, it will be a very good addition, and we hope he will be pleased with what he sees".

He told Burnley's official website: "My ambition has been to play in the Premier League for years".

"I've never started a Premier League game and this what I want to do". I've got lots of ambitions to achieve in the future.

"The squad has done fantastically over the last couple of years to put themselves in the position they are now".

He will become the second Leeds player to make the trip to Burnley this summer, following Charlie Taylor, and goalkeeper Heaton thinks Wood will enjoy life with the Clarets. "I've got goals and dreams that I want to achieve and it starts here".
