He helped promote his side to the English Premier League last season but All Whites striker Chris Wood looks set to remain in the Championship with reports of a transfer move to Wolves.

Sky Sports is reporting the 22-year-old is heading to Wolverhampton Wanderers from Leicester City after the Premier League club signed Argentine striker Leonardo Ulloa last month.

Wood scored four goals in 26 matches for Leicester last season as they topped they the Championship.

Wolves also earned promotion last season - from League One back to the Championship after relegation in the 2013.

If the transfer is made Wolves will be Wood's sixth Championship club in five seasons.
