Bermuda’s Nahki Wells has signed a new three-year deal with Bradford City that will keep him with the team until July 2015.
Bradford’s website said Wells has been “given a new deal for this campaign on improved terms with a further two seasons bolted onto the end of it.”
The 22-year-old already has five goals this season, including two goals earlier this week which he scored with only 8 minutes left in the game to force extra-time, leading Bradford to a 3-2 victory.
He finished last season — which was his first as a professional — with 12 goals including a hat-trick in Bradford’s win over Northampton Town back in April of this year.
Wells said: “I’m happy that this is all sorted and agreed with the football club. I always wanted to stay at Bradford. I felt this was something that was always going to happen, we just needed everything to be right for both parties.
“Now it’s all signed, I’m delighted to get it done and hopefully the fans will be pleased by the news as well. I’d like to thank them (the fans) for all of their great support so far.
“They always give me a buzz when they chant my name. I just hope I can do well for them, my family and the football club now. We have a good squad here and I’m looking forward to the future.”
Bradford boss Phil Parkinson added: “I am obviously pleased to see Nahki commit his future to the football club. It is always important to try and keep your best players at the club.
“Nahki has done very well for us in recent months and has shown a lot of potential. We hope that he can continue to grow and improve with us now he has signed this new deal.”
