Woods, 25, who scored 44 goals in 88 appearances joined Leeds United from Leicester City in 2015 and becomes Burnley’s Sean Dyche sixth recruit of the summer.

Woods who has penned a four year deal with the Clarets said he is relishing the chance to play in the Premier League stating; “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 is what I want to do”, he added.

“This is a club that wants to stay in the Premier League for years to come and it’s going that way”, he was quick to indicate.

Chris Wood is eligible to start his EFL campaign against Blackburn on Wednesday and will be eligible for Burnley when they travel to Wembley for a showdown with Spurs on Saturday.
