Poyet thinks New Zealand international Wood has improved since he helped the Seagulls to win League One two seasons ago.

"We had him here when he was very young and we helped each other. He helped us a lot with his power and his goals. I think we did our job as well to put him in shape, because he was still growing up," he told the Argus.

"I think he is a much better player now. He is mature, he has learnt a lot about the game in England. He is playing week in week out, so he's much better.

"There has been plenty of talk and he is a player we know very well, which would make it very easy to make a decision one way or the other.

"At the moment he is with Millwall, so I don't want to make a mess before the game just in case they take it the wrong way, so we'll see."

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
