Leeds United boss Neil Warnock admits the club tried to sign Chris Wood from West Brom.
The striker has been on loan from the baggies with championship side Millwall.
The 21-year-old New Zealand international has netted eleven times in nineteen appearances for Millwall including the winner against Leeds at the New Den in November.
Wood has agree a deal with fellow championship side Leicester City believed to start in the region of £1.25 million, rising to £2 million and Warnock admitted that he could not compete with Leicester.
Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, “No one can compete with Leicester in our league when they come in for a player.”
The news that Leeds cannot compete with Leicester is a reality check for the fans on what we may see spent in January under new owners GFH Capital.
Fans were hoping to see finances in place for the manager to bring in the quality that is needed in the January transfer window to give Leeds a hope of pushing for promotion in the second half of the season.
With little quality usually available in January, it looks like Leeds are still going to struggle financially to compete for any real quality that is available.
