Leeds midfielder Dallas raps Wood over Burnley move

Leeds United midfielder Stuart Dallas has rapped former teammate Chris Wood over his move to Burnley.

Wood bagged 30 goals for the Yorkshire outfit last season, but then rocked them by quitting Elland Road in a £15m transfer deadline day switch to the Clarets.

Winger Dallas and his Championship table-toppers travel across the Pennines to take on Wood's new side tonight in the Carabao Cup.

The Northern Ireland international said: “I don't mean to be disrespectful, but there is more to life for us than Chris Wood.

“But he has gone to the Premier League, and Charlie decided to take the same route. That's their choice, and good luck to them.

“But we need to go to their place now and show them that they made the wrong decision by leaving us.

“Players come and go, that's a fact of footballing life. It will be good to come up against the pair of them, and it'll give us extra motivation to turn them over - although they might be thinking the same way, too."
