West Brom boss: Millwall need "big cheque" to sign Wood

WEST Brom boss Steve Clarke has warned Millwall that they will not be able to sign Chris Wood on the cheap this January.

The Lions have already confirmed that they want to make Wood's loan spell at The Den permanent and reports last week claimed they had already made a bid for the 20-year-old.

But Clarke told the Birmingham Mail: "There is nothing happening on that front. Chris has gone out for experience and scored a few goals down there.

"If anyone wants to buy him they’ll need a big wallet or deep pockets or a big cheque because goalscorers in the Championship cost a lot of money.”

    If we had made a bid for Chris Woods, Clarke would have known about it and he would then not be talking like he is!
    As for his warning that Millwall will not be able to sign Chris Wood on the cheap this January that remains to be seen but if he wants to influence the price then by stating "they’ll need a big wallet or deep pockets or a big cheque because goalscorers in the Championship cost a lot of money" is neither clever or relevant where the player is concered if he is out of contract!
    However, JB & KJ had better make sure we get him!!!

    Yeah, and as Wood's contract is up in the summer, I can't see anyone paying big money for him when he can walk for free.
    If WBA don't want to play ball, Millwall should try and get Wood to sign a pre contract and sign him in the summer.

    West Brom have a 1 year option in the clubs favour to extend his contract until May 2014. I think Steve Clarke's point is that he doesn't want to sell him, so only big money would make him reconsider.
