Thomas Christiansen insists that "no player is above Leeds United", as he confirms that striker Chris Wood is on his way out of the club.

The New Zealand worldwide ruled himself out of Leeds' win at Sunderland, saying "I do not feel it is right that I play", and United boss Thomas Christiansen expects the move to go through after a medical.

It has emerged that Chris Wood is set to move to Burnley and considering that the New Zealand worldwide was the club's top goal scorer last season, they will need to bring in quality reinforcements up front in order to ensure that there is no shortage of goals for the new season.

Wood had been omitted from the Leeds squad to face Sunderland on Sky Sports and said on Twitter it would "not be right" for him to play while a transfer to the Premier League was in the works.

"I wish the team all the best and hope the lads can pick up the 3 points".

Aside from the game, it looks like Gabriel will be off to Valencia to play football there next season instead of North London. Wenger said: "We have scouts everywhere, basically". "I think we can give him a platform here to really enjoy himself".

For whatever reason, the Scot failed to repeat the same form he had shown at Fulham and Leeds in previous years and ended the season on loan at Nottingham Forest scoring just once for them.

The Championship's top scorer with 27 goals during the 2016/17 campaign, Wood has attracted a lot of interest from Premier League clubs this summer. "That means his mind is not with Leeds - and I only want players who'll fight for the shirt".

"But he was recognised and appreciated player at this club and everyone has to respect his decision".

"We had agreed something with Bournemouth and ultimately he is a good player that I wanted to bring to the club".

Wood has been at Elland Road for two years and scored 44 goals in 88 appearances since joining from Leicester.
