Dean Windass believes Chris Wood would willingly swap Burnley for West Ham United if they were to make an offer, he has told This Is Futbol.
The striker has been in exceptional form for the Clarets in recent weeks.
He has scored eight goals in his last 10 games for Sean Dyche’s side, including a superb hat-trick in the 4-0 win over Wolves.

And Windass, who played for the likes of Hull City, Bradford City, Middlesbrough and Sheffield United throughout his storied career, thinks that Wood would be more than willing to move to the Hammers if a bid was made.
The Hammers are in need of a new striker this summer after selling Sebastien Haller to Ajax in the January transfer window and failing to replace him.
Michail Antonio is their only senior centre-forward, and Windass thinks a move for Wood would be well-received by the 29-year-old.
Speaking exclusively to TIF, he said: “He’d leave Burnley for West Ham, without a shadow of a doubt, no disrespect to Burnley. He’ll get more money in wages.
“I’m not saying that he’s a top-four centre-forward but he’s done extremely well.
“And the other reason he’s done extremely well is Sean Dyche and the way that they play.”
