January 27, 2020 | 0 Comments

Bermudian footballer Nahki Wells has returned to Burnley after the club recalled him from his loan at QPR saying they plan to “determine the striker’s long-term future,” and QPR has confirmed that they are “keen to sign the striker on a permanent basis.”

A statement from Burnley said, “Nahki Wells has returned to Turf Moor after the Clarets re-called him from his loan spell at Queens Park Rangers.

“The Clarets exercised their option to curtail the loan agreement and have brought Wells back to determine the striker’s long-term future. Wells has scored 15 times for QPR this season, including 13 goals in the Championship.

“The former Bradford City and Huddersfield Town striker – who joined the Clarets from Huddersfield in August, 2017 – also scored nine times for the Londoners during a season-long loan at Loftus Road in 2018/19.”

A statement from QPR said, “Nahki Wells has been recalled by parent club Burnley, and QPR CEO Lee Hoos has confirmed the R’s are keen to sign the striker on a permanent basis.

“Wells joined QPR in the summer on a season-long loan following a successful 2018/19 in W12. The 29-year-old has scored 15 goals in 29 appearances this season.”

Hoos told “Burnley have recalled Nahki which is their right. I wouldn’t normally make any comments regarding potential transfer targets but in this instance it is important our supporters know we are keen to sign Nahki on a permanent basis.

“Our current valuations on the player are far apart and we cannot agree to a deal which will leave us in breach of FFP.

“We are working hard for a positive conclusion but we must ensure any agreement is financially viable for QPR.”
