Striker sees Town as perfect place to develop

Club record transfer signing Nahki Wells believes Huddersfield Town is the perfect place to develop his promising career.

The 23 year-old put pen to paper on a four and a half year deal with the Terriers this evening and is available to play against Millwall tomorrow.

Speaking to, he said: “To get everything signed and over the line is a massive relief; it has been a long day but it was well worth it.

“It is a new chapter in my career and I can’t wait to start doing the business for Huddersfield Town.

“It was important that I picked my next club carefully, where I could develop my trade and I felt that Town offered me what I wanted. Mark Robins impressed me and he felt that I had a lot to add to his side. Town play good football and create a lot of chances, which is perfect.

“As a striker he can relate to me and can see my attributes. Hopefully I can learn a lot from him and develop.”

The striker was integral to Bradford City’s success last season and believes he can have the same effect as a Terrier. 

“I want to play in the Premier League, but it is about making the right steps,” he said. “Huddersfield is an important step in my career. It is a step up from the league that I have been playing in and I want to prove that I am good enough to play in the Championship. Promotion is still well in reach for the Club this season, but if it doesn’t happen, we will go again next season.”

On his time with the Bantams, he said: “I love Bradford to bits, they did everything for me. I wanted to end my time with them on good terms because I want to be welcomed back in the future. 

“They gave me an opportunity and I enjoyed some unbelievable moments with them. I hope they remember me for the right reason and I wish them all the best for the remainder of the season.”

Looking ahead to life in the Championship, the striker was hopeful that he would play some part against the Lions.

“I am fit enough to play some part. I haven’t trained for a couple of days though, but hopefully I will get some time on the pitch.”
