The New Zealand international ended his debut season at Elland Road as United’s top goalscorer, finding the net 13 times in 2015/16 following his summer arrival from eventual Premier League champions Leicester City.

Wood, who is the youngest-ever player to captain his country, has achieved promotion with three of his previous clubs – West Brom, Brighton and Leicester. Penning a four-year deal with United saw the centre-forward become the club’s most expensive signing outside of the top-flight.

Wood’s senior career began with homeland side Cambridge FC, making his debut aged 15, before being brought to England by West Brom back in 2009.
