Chris Wood free to leave on loan


Leicester City striker Chris Wood has been made available to leave the club on loan.

The 23-year-old’s only goal of the season came in a 2-2 draw against Everton on the opening day and he has made just six more appearances since then due to injury. The arrival of club-record signing Andrej Kramarić has also seen Chris Wood fall further down the pecking order with a drop down to the Championship on a short-term deal reportedly imminent.

Nottingham Forest, Ipswich Town, Wigan Athletic, Sheffield Wednesday and Wolverhampton Wanderers are all interested in signing the New Zealand striker on an emergency loan deal.
