BURNLEY have completed the signing of Chris Wood for a club record undisclosed fee.

The striker joins on a four-year deal from Championship side Leeds United.

The 25-year-old was the top scorer in the second tier last season and could make his debut in Wednesday night's Carabao Cup tie against rivals Blackburn Rovers.

“My ambition has been to play in the Premier League for years,” said Wood who has enjoyed brief spells in the top flight with West Brom and Leicester,

“I’ve had tastes of being in there but I’ve never had the chance to give it a proper bash.

“Coming here I feel I’ve got a proper opportunity to do that. I’ve never started a Premier League game and this what I want to do.

“This is a club that wants to stay in the Premier League for years to come and it’s going that way.

"The squad has done fantastically over the last couple of years to put themselves in the position they are now.

“There have been some great additions this summer, which I’m sure has given everyone an added boost, to move forward and cement us as a Premier League team and looking on further up the league.

“The manager has given me a lot of confidence and backed me to bring me here, which is what you want.

“I’ve still got a lot of good years ahead of me. I’ve got lots of ambitions to achieve in the future. I’ve got goals and dreams that I want to achieve and it starts here.”

Wood is Burnley manager Sean Dyche’s sixth signing of the summer and hit 27 goals for Leeds last season.

The New Zealand international has also scored 20 times in 52 appearances for his country.
