Nahki Wells is available to leave Sky Bet Championship side Bristol City for the right price this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Bermudian has one year remaining on his contract at Ashton Gate and it is understood the club want to recoup some of the £4 million they paid for him when he joined from Premier League side Burnley in 2020.

The 31-year-old, who saw a loan move to Championship rivals Cardiff City collapse in January, has started just seven matches this season.

A report in Bristol Live yesterday read: “The coming transfer window also represents the last opportunity City have to recoup something for the striker [Wells] before his valuation begins to plummet before free agency next summer.

“With January loan moves to Cardiff and Swansea City breaking down due to the Robins insistence he would only be permitted to leave on a permanent move, and no viable options emerging over the course of the month, the same theory is likely to be applied for the coming transfer window.

“Bristol Live understands that Wells hasn’t been informed of what his transfer status is, nor are City considering the concept of him being available on a free. At least not yet, anyway.

“Although frustrated at a lack of opportunities, Wells hasn’t formally requested a transfer either.

“However, he is conscious that City want to reduce their wage bill and given another season spent predominantly on the sidelines awaits, and exit is more than likely, should a suitable deal for both parties be found.”

The report added: “There is a belief that despite his lack of game time over the last nine months, such is Wells’s Championship pedigree, there is still a significant market out there for the Bermudian international, even amidst a challenging financial landscape in the EFL.”

In an interview with Bernews in February, Wells said: “I know how the game goes; if things don’t work out, we’ll reassess things in the summer.

“There’s a lot of football left in me, and I have so much more to offer. I’m a proven Championship striker, and if I’m playing in the right set-up. I think I’ll thrive.”
