LUFC Radrizzani - We Only Want Players Committed To Leeds

Leeds United have issued a statement to regarding the departure of Chris Wood to Burnley.

The striker has left Leeds to join Burnley and Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani issued a statement on the clubs official website to say they have been trying to do a deal with Wood to keep him at Elland Road for the past month and they only want players that are committed to the club.


For the past month we have tried to negotiate a new three year contract with Chris Wood.

We offered the player strong financial terms including reasonable exit clauses, lower than the fee we demanded for a transfer this summer, should the club not reach the Premier League in a certain timeframe.


However the player`s preference was to leave Leeds United and as he only had one year left on his contract after this season we had to protect the club and ensure we did not sell Chris below our valuation.


We want players at Leeds who consider us a big club and we want players who are committed to our vision to return to the Premier League.


Supporters can rest assured that monies generated from the sale of Chris Wood will be reinvested into adding to the 12 signings we have made already.


Thank you for your continued support.

Leeds have also said that they will exchange all replica shirts that have had Wood 9 printed on the back for a new shirt.
