Football: Bristol City ‘Thrilled’ To Sign Nahki Wells

January 30, 2020

Bermudian striker Nahki Wells — who is one of the top goal scorers in the Championship League — has been signed by Bristol City, with the club saying they are “thrilled to welcome” him as he is “a player with so much talent and he is a proven goalscorer.”


The club’s announcement said, “City have signed striker Nahki Wells from Premier League side Burnley for an undisclosed fee.

“Bermuda international forward Wells, 29, joins the Robins on a three-and-a-half year contract, having spent the last season-and-a-half on loan at QPR.

“Wells was the R’s top goalscorer this season with 15 goals in all competitions; 13 in the Sky Bet Championship with an average of one league goal every other match.

Bristol City Chief Executive Officer Mark Ashton said: “We are thrilled to welcome Nahki Wells to Bristol City, which is a really exciting transfer for us. Nahki is a player we have watched for a long time and we know just how talented he is with a goalscoring record that really does speak for itself.

“Nahki brings extra quality to Lee’s attacking options and that is vital as we push on in this second half of the season.”

Robins Head Coach Johnson said: “Nahki is a player with so much talent and he is a proven goalscorer at this level. I have spoken before of our ability to create a lot of chances and I think Nahki will help us in terms of that clinical edge which we have needed at times.

“I’m really looking forward to working with him and I think he will be a great fit in our squad, as we set our sights on a strong finish with 18 matches left.”

Bristol City’s next match, rather ironically, is against QPR — the team Wells just finished playing for — this Saturday, February 1st

While the transfer fee was not disclosed, multiple British media are reporting that it was around £4 million [$5.2 million].
