Chris Wood: Leeds United are on the right path

Chris Wood has scored 13 goals in 38 caps for New Zealand

New Leeds United striker Chris Wood says he believes the club has "turned a corner".

The 23-year-old joined the Elland Road side from Leicester for an undisclosed fee on a four-year deal on Wednesday.

Last season the club went through three head coaches, were placed under a transfer embargo and owner Massimo Cellino served a Football League ban.

"Things didn't look right last season but I think the club has turned a corner now," he told BBC Radio Leeds.

"I did my research, looked behind the scenes and spoke to the owner and I think the club is on the right path.

"It's going to take a lot of work for things to come together but I think they have the right people on board to do that."

The New Zealand international struggled for form last season, scoring just once for Leicester and failing to score in eight loan appearances at Ipswich Town.

He is confident he can recapture the form that saw him score 22 goals for Millwall and the Foxes in 2012-13.

"I've got the confidence that my best years are ahead of me," he said.

"I want to be hitting my peak now and I feel like I can do that here."

He added: "Leeds showed me the love, the passion, the drive and, ultimately, that's perfect for me."
