Wells Moves To The Terriers
Bradford City have today confirmed that their Bermudian forward Nahki Wells has left the football club to join Sky Bet Championship side Huddersfield Town.
Wells has initially joined Huddersfield on an emergency loan deal, which will allow him to feature in Huddersfield’s game with Millwall this Saturday. He will then sign a four-and-half year deal with Bradford’s West Yorkshire neighbours from Monday.
The Bermudian moves to the John Smith’s Stadium for an undisclosed fee, although it is believed Huddersfield have broken their club record transfer fee to bring in Wells from Bradford, the previous record paid for a player was £1.25 million.
Nahki Wells was an extremely popular figure during his time with the Bantams and he leaves the Coral Windows Stadium after scoring an impressive 54 goals in 112 appearances for City.
Speaking about his move to Huddersfield, Wells said: “I feel this is a good move for my career to learn my trade in the Championship. I see Huddersfield moving in the right direction and I hope this move will work out for me in the end.
I had some great times at Bradford and hopefully I can say that I am leaving them on a good note. I always did what I could for Bradford but I’m moving onto the next chapter of my career now with Huddersfield.”
