Nahki Wells Joins The Clarets
Burnley Football Club have this afternoon confirmed the signing of Nahki Wells on a three-year contract. The Clarets completed the deadline-day signing of the striker, from Premier League rivals Huddersfield Town for a fee of around £5million.
The Bermuda international scored 48 goals in 152 appearances for Huddersfield Town and ends a three and-a-half-year stay with the Terriers after helping the West Yorkshire club climb into the top-flight. Previous to that Wells was a prolific stay with Bradford City, where he also won promotion and helped the then League Two side reach the 2013 Capital Cup Final at Wembley, during a season which saw him score 26 times.
Speaking about the move Nahki Wells said, “I have no doubt this is an ideal move for me, I have played at every level besides the Premier League. I achieved that in the summer by getting promoted with Huddersfield, it wasn’t something that was going to change.
I have always wanted to play in the Premier League and I’ve documented that way back, when I first broke into the game. Now the opportunity is here and I’m very thankful to Burnley Football Club for giving me the chance, I feel I can go on and do great things.”
