Leeds United fans need to prepare themselves for a long summer of transfer speculation over the future of Chris Wood.
Wood's goalscoring feats in the Championship this season nearly helped Leeds to a playoff spot as he chipped in with over 40 per cent of the Whites' total league goals.
The Elland Road outfit now face a huge battle to keep their talisman, with four Premier League sides all said to be keen on the 25-year-old, who was also linked with a switch to the cash-rich Chinese Super League in January.
And his impressive goalscoring form has not gone unnoticed with the Daily Mirror claiming West Ham and Stoke are interested in securing his signature.
However, the centre-back has returned to Swansea City and looks set to stay there - unless Leeds can buy him permanently.
Leeds paid just £3m to sign Wood from Leicester and banking a £15m to £20m fee for the New Zealand global would represent a big profit for the Elland Road outfit.
West Ham will be hoping that Wood will be tempted to the London Stadium and that Winston Reid - the striker's New Zealand colleague - will be able to persuade him that east London is the right destination.
The honour caps a fantastic campaign for Wood after he finished the domestic season as the Championship's top goalscorer.
