Burnley completed the signing of striker Nahki Wells from Huddersfield Town for an undisclosed fee just before the 2017 August transfer deadline.

The former Bradford City forward agreed a three-year deal at Turf Moor.

Bermuda-born, Wells started his career in his home country before moving to England and signing for Carlisle United on a short-term deal following a trial spell in January, 2011.

He left Brunton Park at the end of that season but impressed on trial at Bradford City to earn an initial 12-month deal with the then League Two side.

Wells scored 12 times in his first season at Valley Parade and went on to strike up a prolific partnership with James Hanson as he secured an extended contract.

The pair enjoyed an inspired 2012/13 season as they spearheaded Bradford’s famous run to the final of the League Cup and to promotion via the play-offs, both scoring in the play-off final win over Northampton Town at Wembley.

Wells scored 26 times in total – to go with 15 goals from Hanson - and then followed that with 14 goals in just 19 appearances in League One in the first half of the following season before moving into the Championship with Huddersfield Town in January, 2014.

He spent three-and-a-half seasons with the Terriers, playing in a central and wider attacking role, scoring 48 goals in 152 appearances.

Wells hit double figures in each of his three full seasons with Town, including 10 in 31 starts in 2016/17 as David Wagner’s side secured promotion to the Premier League for the first time via a play-off final penalty shoot-out win over Reading, with Wells successfully converting one of the spot-kicks.

He missed the start of Huddersfield’s return to top-flight football for the first time since 1972 following minor ankle surgery which also delayed the start of his Burnley career following his arrival at Turf Moor.

Competition for places during the Clarets' most successful league season since 1974 then limited Wells' opportunities, with his 10 appearances all coming from the bench.

Wells then joined Championship side Queens Park Rangers in the summer of 2018 on a season-long loan, scoring nine times for the Londoners and resuming his international career to help Bermuda reach the Concacaf Gold Cup for the first time.

He then rejoined Rangers on a season-long loan on the eve of the 2019/20 season.
