All Whites striker Chris Wood has found a new home in the Premier League, leaving Burnley for one of England's most famous clubs. 

His move to Newcastle United is all but complete, with the Magpies swooping in and triggering Wood's $40 million release clause. 

The Kiwi has undergone a medical examination at the Saudi Arabian-backed club. 

Sky Sports football's Dharmesh Sheth sees it as a big loss for Burnley. 

“He plays for them all the time, he’s a regular and he’s the focal point of their attack.”
