All Whites striker Chris Wood looks set to join Leicester City in the English Championship.

His hot form while on loan to Millwall, where he has scored 11 goals in 19 games, has been attracting plenty of interest for his owners West Bromwich Albion.

It looks certain that WBA, an English Premier League club, will cash in on this.

Several reports in British media today have Wood joining Leicester, an English championship club, on a deal worth up to £2m ($NZ3.93m).

Leicester are making no comment until the deal is completed with Wood facing a medical clearance and then using the January transfer window to complete the paperwork.

The Mercury Sport reported that the initial transfer fee was £1.25m ($NZ2.45) with £750,000 ($NZ$1.47m) in add-ons and bonuses.

That offer far outweighed a £1m ($NZ1.97m) deal Millwall were prepared to pay to hold on to the goal-hungry 21-year-old.

Leicester are currently fifth on the points table, two places above Millwall.
