Wood has returned to the Hawthorns after a successful loan spell at Millwall and Baggies assistant coach Keith Downing expects the move to Leicester to be finalised when the January window opens.
The 21-year-old is down the pecking order at Albion behind the likes of Shane Long, Romelu Lukaku, Peter Odemwingie and Marc-Antoine Fortune.
Downing said: "Leicester has shown a great interest in Chris and I expect the move to be done when the transfer window opens.
"He has done exceptionally well at Millwall and we have brought him back here."
