Wolves boss Jackett reveals talks for Leicester striker Wood

Wolves are in talks for Leicester City striker Chris Wood.

The Foxes are keen to get new players in before letting others out but manager Kenny Jackett revealed Wolves want former Albion hitman Wood.

He said: "We have made enquires and we have been in dialogue, definitely. I can't deny that but in terms of formalising a deal we are some way off.

"I haven't spoken to Chris, we haven't had that green light yet but it's one we are pursuing.

"I had him on loan at Millwall and he has a good goals-per-game ratio at all of the clubs he's had.

"He has a lot of experience for a 22-year-old as well and good forwards are hard to come by.

"We are always looking, I wouldn't say it's been a necessary tactic over the summer where we would only sign two (Rajiv van La Parra and Tommy Rowe).

"We have a settled group and the dynamics are pretty good so we must be very careful with who and what we do add."
