It has proved to be third time unlucky for Wolverhampton Wanderers head coach Kenny Jackett as he has once again missed out on striker Chris Wood.

Leicester City had accepted bids from both Wolverhampton Wanderers and Leeds United for striker Chris Wood, with Jackett attempting to snap up his man at the third attempt.

12 months ago, Wolves reportedly agreed a fee with the Premier League side for his transfer.

But Wood rejected our personal terms and then went on to feature for Leicester and score against Everton during the opening weekend of the Premier League season.

One month on and according to speculation at least, Wolverhampton Wanderers had been set to sign Leicester City striker Chris Wood on loan. But for a second time, Wolves failed to sign the striker.

He went on to play a bit part role with Leicester up until January, making nine appearances before joining Ipswich Town in the Championship on loan in March.

He made eight appearances without scoring a goal.

It was clear his time at Leicester was up, but where would he move too? With Leicester accepting bids from both Leeds and Wolves it was all down to where the 23-year-old would prefer to go.

Would Jackett finally get his man?

After snubbing us in the past I wasn’t overly optimistic and that proved to be right as he has signed a four-year-deal with Leeds.

That long-term contract could well be what clinched the move for Leeds with Wood telling ‘I`ve got a nice long deal which is what I wanted – I want to be at a club for a long period of time.’
