MILLWALL are set to face competition from Leicester City and Huddersfield Town for loan star Chris Wood after both clubs reportedly joined the hunt for the striker.
It was reported on Wednesday night that the Foxes have matched the Lions' £1million bid for Wood – just 24 hours after the Terriers were claimed to be considering making an offer of their own.
Earlier in the week, a source told NewsAtDen that links between the West Brom frontman and other Championship clubs were "just rumours" – but it is increasingly likely that Millwall will have to fend off rival interest to secure his signature.
Huddersfield's pursuit of Wood is expected to hinge on whether manager Simon Grayson is able to extend the loan deal of Jermaine Beckford – coincidentally on Leicester's books – while the Yorkshire outfit are also trying to keep Reading striker Simon Church.
But they have cash to burn following the £8million sale of Jordan Rhodes in August and the Lions are unlikely to be drawn into a bidding war if the Baggies hike their asking price in the wake of several bids.
Leicester, who themselves are financed by rich Thai businessman Vichai Raksriaksorn, will get the chance to see Wood in action first-hand when they travel to The Den on Saturday.
