City sign Nahki Wells

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.”

Wells’ career began in his home country at Dandy Town Hornets and Bermuda Hogges before a move to the UK and a brief spell at non-league outfit Eccleshill United.

He featured for Carlisle United in the 2010/11 season before going on to score an impressive 53 goals in three-and-a-half seasons at Bradford.

Wells helped The Bantams win promotion from League Two in 2012/13, scoring in the play-off final, as well as featuring in the League Cup final of the same campaign.
