KENNY Jackett has revealed that he is unsure whether West Brom will be willing to sell Chris Wood to Millwall in the January transfer window.

Jackett has for the first time confirmed that he wants to keep the New Zealand international at The Den beyond the end of his loan spell, but admits that may not be possible on a permanent basis.

Wood has scored eight goals in 13 appearances for the Lions this season and stole the headlines again with a sensational strike in the 2-0 win over Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.

And while Jackett appeared to confirm that talks are underway with the Baggies, he would not be drawn on their progress.

"Without second-guessing Chris' parent club, it depends what their thoughts are," he said. "It's above me – negotiations are above my head [at boardroom level].

"He's certainly in a rich vein of form. He'll be the first to admit that the partners he's played with have been very good as well. Andy Keogh and Darius Henderson have really helped him out.

"He's here until Christmas and its obvious that we want him for longer, whatever the circumstances happen to be. If we could get him at Millwall, of course we would. That's for definite."
