MILLWALL have been dealt a blow in the transfer market after learning that loan star Chris Wood has agreed to sign for rivals Leicester City.
Both clubs had bids accepted by West Brom for the 21-year-old but the Lions have now conceded defeat in the race to land him, with the striker set to have a medical in the Midlands on Thursday.
NewsAtDen understands that boss Kenny Jackett has elected to send Wood back to the Baggies immediately and will not play him against Cardiff or Bristol City before his loan ends on January 1.
The New Zealand international had previously stated that he would "definitely" sign for Millwall if given the opportunity, but the Foxes have convinced him to move to the King Power Stadium.
Chairman John Berylson revealed earlier this month that enquiries have already been made for other targets and Jackett will now begin to set the wheels in motion on other deals.
