He joined the Welsh side last summer in a £400,000 move from Middlesbrough.
Swansea boss Russell Martin has previously said how much of a loss Wood would be to them if he moved on in the summer.
He said: "He is a huge asset to the football club, on the pitch and off the pitch.
"He's been amazing – a young man who has just grown and grown on the pitch and off the pitch as well.
"He is becoming a real leader in the group. He's an incredible learner and he's incredibly brave with the way that he plays. He will play at the very top, no doubt about it.
"He will be a huge asset financially at some point. I just hope we get a bit longer to work with him than one season, like Flynn [Downes], but we will have to wait and see.
"I look at him and he is 6ft 3in, he is built like a heavyweight boxer and he can run very fast.
"He displays unbelievable courage and technique on the ball… and just the amount of growth he has had this season – I do fear that [he could leave this summer].
"I don't think it's a bad fear to have. It's one of the reasons we were brought to the club, to develop young players.
