Burnley determined to keep hold of Newcastle target Wood

Burnley are determined to keep hold of Chris Wood this month.

The Sun says Burnley are ready to rebuff any bids for Wood from relegation rivals Newcastle this month.

However Burnley are in a scrap of their own and believe Wood will be vital if they are to beat the drop.

And they have no intention of strengthening one of the clubs who will be battling with them for survival over the next four months.

Wood, 30, only has three Prem goals this term – but hit double figures in each of his previous four campaigns at Turf Moor.

And that's why the former Leeds forward has appeared on the radar of Howe who is desperate to bolster his club's chances of staying up.

Newcastle have also been linked with Burnley's long-serving defensive duo of Ben Mee and James Tarkowski.
