Reports: Bristol City ‘Close’ To A Deal For Wells

January 29, 2020

With the football transfer window deadline looming in the UK, speculation continues to swirl around Nahki Wells, with the latest reports suggesting that Bristol City may be close to agreeing a fee to sign the Bermudian striker.

The Bermuda international – who ranks as one of the top scorers in the Championship League — was recently recalled from his loan to QPR by Burnley, who said they plan to “determine the striker’s long-term future.”

Burnley boss Sean Dyche has confirmed that there is “a lot of interest in” Wells, and Nottingham Forest have also been reported to have been interested in signing him, as have QPR, who have suggested they may not be able to afford the fee, which is reportedly into the millions.

This afternoon, Sky Sports reported that “Bristol City are closing in on an agreement with Burnley to sign Nahki Wells on a permanent deal.”

Bristol Live have also reported the same, stating,”Bristol City are said to be close to agreeing a fee to sign Nahki Wells. City are very keen on signing the striker, who has netted 13 goals in 26 Championship appearances this season, after Burnley terminated his loan at QPR.

“The Telegraph’s Mike McGrath has tweeted that the Robins are close to agreeing a fee for Wells to sign him on a permanent deal.

“In an ironic twist, should the Robins complete a deal for Wells prior to the registration deadline on Friday, his first game for the club could be a trip to QPR on Saturday.

“QPR are believed to have dropped out of the running for Wells over the price tag he was given by the Clarets. Burnley’s previously reported valuation of Wells stood at £7m.”

Update Jan 30, 7.50am: Sky Sports is now reporting, “Bristol City have agreed a deal worth just under £4million to sign Nahki Wells from Burnley. The striker will undergo a medical with the Robins this morning.”
