Nahki Wells has joined Huddersfield from City for an undisclosed sum.

Wells has signed a four-and-a-half year deal with the Championship club for a fee thought to be in the region of £1.5m. That will be further boosted by add-ons, including a sizeable sell-on clause.

Wells will go initially on loan so that he is eligible to feature in tomorrow's game against Millwall. But the permanent transfer deal has been signed and sealed.

Wells said of his move to the Terriers: "For football reasons and career-wise you have to make sure that when you move it's the right move, and this is the right move for me.

"I have had a lot of success and happy times at Bradford and also the opportunity to play in League One with them this season but now I've got the opportunity to play in the Championship with Huddersfield and I'm really looking forward to it."

Last season he helped Phil Parkinson's side to the Capital One Cup final and promotion from League Two.

Wells scored 26 goals in 54 games last season, and 53 in 112 matches since signing from Carlisle United in July 2011.

Huddersfield boss Mark Robins said of his new record signing - whose fee eclipses the £1.2m which lured Marcus Stewart from Bristol Rovers in 1996: "His achievements and potential meant that he was coveted by a host of Premier League and Championship clubs and I am delighted that he has chosen to join us.

"At just 23 he has huge potential, which he has proven at Bradford in the last two seasons. He fits into our ethos of buying young, hungry players who have experience and that we can develop.

"His goalscoring record over the last 18 months is hugely impressive and we believe that he is ready to make the step up to the Championship."
