Burnley signs Nahki Wells from Huddersfield Town


Burnley as completed the signing of another striker Nahki Wells, 27yrs from Premier League rivals
Huddersfield Town on a 3 year contract for an undisclosed fee.

Nahki Wells the Terriers after helping the West Yorkshire club climb into the top-flight.

The Bermuda international scored 48 goals in 152 appearances during his three and-a-half-year stay with Huddersfield after a prolific stay with Bradford City, where he also won promotion and helped the then-League Two side reach the 2013 League Cup final during a season which saw him score 26 times.

“I have no doubt this is an ideal move for me,” said Nahki Wells.

“I have played at every level besides the Premier League. I achieved that by getting promoted (with Huddersfield) and it wasn’t something that was going to change. I have always wanted to play there.

“Now the opportunity is here and I’m very thankful to the football club to give it to me. I feel I can go on and do great things.”

Nahki Wells becomes the Burnley FC seventh signing of the summer.

Nahki Wells is currently recovering from minor ankle surgery he underwent earlier this summer, but is expected to be fit in a number of weeks to challenge for a place in Sean Dyche’s side.

The Burnley boss, who has also strengthened his squad with the addition of frontmen Chris Wood and Jon Walters this summer, said: “We welcome Nahki as another striking option and a player that is different to those we have.

“He holds a different-skill set and therefore we feel can only enhance our attacking options in due course.”
