£15 million worth

You have to watch this clip of Chris Wood missing loads of tap-ins

Burnley fans will be concerned about the credentials of their new £15million forward

Burnley have just splashed out £15million on Chris Wood.

The New Zealand target man is now officially the club’s record transfer and fans are hoping the 25-year-old can fill the void left by Andre Gray.

Wood has made the leap from Championship to Premier League

Last season Wood scored 27 goals as he finished as the Championship’s top scorer.

But this clip from an old episode of Soccer AM reveals that Wood may not be the most natural finisher on the scene…

This 30 seconds makes it look like he’s never played football before.

It’ll also soften the blow of Wood’s departure for Leeds fans who may now believe the club were right to cash in at the opportune moment.

The Elland Road club are said to be keen on signing Rudy Gestede from Middlesbrough as a replacement.

The fantastically named Jay-Roy Grot is also on Thomas Christiansen’s wishlist.

The 19-year-old Dutchman has impressed with NEC and is wanted by several European clubs.

We wouldn’t advise any cameos on Soccer AM any time soon though…
