The 49-year-old was replaced as the Championship side's boss by Uwe Rosler in May.

He was subsequently offered the chance to return to his previous role in charge of the club's academy but in a statement today he announced that he has not taken up the option.

Redfearn guided the Whites to safety last season after taking over the reins on a permanent basis in November.

Wood, 23, arrives at Elland Road for an undisclosed fee.

The New Zealand international becomes United’s fourth summer signing following the additions of Charlie Horton, Lee Erwin and Sol Bamba earlier this month.

Wood, who joined Leicester from West Brom in 2013, scored 20 times during his 62 appearances in all competitions for the Foxes.

He’s physical, strong and experienced in this league. He has potential to develop and has his best years in front of him. It’s exciting. He already has a proven goalscoring record and I think there are many goals to come. We think that he is the right player.

– Uwe Rosler

Reports: Leeds owner Cellino fined for tax evasion
