- Nahki Wells departs Huddersfield Town
- Striker completes permanent move to Burnley
- Comments from Head Coach David Wagner
Nahki Wells has today completed a permanent transfer to Premier League side Burnley, ending his time at Huddersfield Town.
The terms of Nahki’s transfer will remain undisclosed.
Nahki joined Huddersfield Town in January 2014 under Mark Robins, signing for a then-Club record fee from Bradford City.
He went on to make 153 appearances for the Terriers in the Sky Bet Championship, scoring 49 goals in the process.
The Bermuda international finished as the Club’s top scorer for two consecutive seasons between 2014 and 2016, leaving as Town’s 25th all-time top goal scorer – one ahead of Frank Worthington.
During Town’s promotion winning campaign, Wells started 34 games alongside 12 substitute appearances, scoring 10 goals. The 5ft 7’ tall striker also stepped up to score penalties against Sheffield Wednesday and Reading in the Play-Offs.
Nahki’s contract at Huddersfield Town was set to run until the summer of 2018.
Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner commented:
“Nahki is a great character and has been a very important player for Huddersfield Town for a long time but now this move works for everyone.
“He is a very good player but at this moment in time we have a number of high quality players and options in our offensive line.
“Everyone here at Huddersfield Town would like to thank Nahki for what he has done for the Club and wishes him all the best for the future."
