Huddersfield Town has signed Bradford City striker Nahki Wells for an undisclosed Club record fee.
The 23 year-old striker is currently second in the League 1 scoring charts with 14 goals and has today signed a four and a half year deal with the Terriers.
The Bermudian scored 18 goals and assisted five as the Bantams achieved promotion to League 1 last season, scoring the third as City beat Northampton Town 3-0 in the Play-Off Final. He also scored three goals as City reached the Capital One Cup Final, including the opener against Aston Villa at Valley Parade.
Wells hit nine goals in his first eight starts of the 2013/14 season and his since netted a hat trick against Coventry City.
The former Carlisle striker has already played at the John Smith’s Stadium this season when he scored a superb long range consolation for the Bantams in the Capital One Cup.
The striker will wear the number 21 shirt for the Terriers and is available to Mark Robins for selection ahead of Millwall.
Mark Robins said: “We have tracked the progress of Nahki for some time and we are delighted that we have secured his signature.
“At just 23 he has huge potential, which he has proven at Bradford in the last two seasons. He fits into our ethos of buying young, hungry players who have experience and that we can develop.
“His goal scoring record over the last 18 months is hugely impressive and we believe that he is ready to make the step up to the Championship. He will excite our fans and has already shown them what he can do with his goal in the Capital One Cup. I believe he will offer our frontline something different and I can’t wait to watch him in action for Huddersfield Town.
“For a young man he has already achieved a lot in his career having reached the Capital One Cup Final and promotion with Bradford.
“His achievements and potential meant that he was coveted by a host of Premier League and Championship clubs and I am delighted that he has chosen to join us.”
