CITY are believed to have netted just over £500,000 after Nahki Wells' move from Huddersfield to Burnley was confirmed yesterday.

The former Bantams striker, who is currently recovering from minor ankle surgery, put pen to paper on a three-year deal at Turf Moor.

The transfer was for an undisclosed fee though it is thought the move is initially for in the region of £5million.

That triggered a sell-on clause inserted in his £1.5m move from Valley Parade to the Terriers in January 2014, which is understood to be 15 per cent of any profit on that fee.

With City having already received around £1.8m due to add-ons, including Huddersfield's promotion to the Premier League, it means they are understood to have banked around £2.3m in total from selling the Bermudian.

They would also be entitled to a further 15 per cent of any further payments on the Burnley deal.

Dandy Town, Wells' home-town club in Bermuda where he was at before moving to Valley Parade, will also receive £10,000 from City.

"I have no doubt this is an ideal move for me," said Wells.

"I have played at every level besides the Premier League. I achieved that by getting promoted (with Huddersfield) and it wasn't something that was going to change. I have always wanted to play there.

"I've documented that way back, when I first broke into the game.

"Now the opportunity is here and I'm very thankful to the football club to give it to me. I feel I can go on and do great things."

Wells had minor surgery to resolve an ankle problem earlier this month and has not featured this season for Huddersfield in the Premier League.

He had slipped down the pecking order at the John Smith's Stadium when the Terriers paid club record fees, first for Depoitre to Porto and then Mounie to Montpellier in June and July respectively.
