Based on Burnley scouts spotted watching Huddersfield Town recently it had been thought that their target might have been striker, James Vaughan but the suggestion is now that it could have been Nahki Wells instead. The Clarets are rumoured to be interested in luring Wells to Turf Moor in a player-plus cash bid with Marvin Sordell going in the opposite direction. Former Addicks gaffer, Chris Powell, currently the Huddersfield manager worked with Sordell while was on loan at Charlton Athletic and is thought to be an admirer of the former Watford and Bolton striker. Wells is Huddersfield`s leading scorer this season with ten goals so far but the 24-year-old has found himself in and out of the starting line-up in recent weeks. In total, Wells has scored 16 goals since signing for Huddersfield 12 months ago for £1.3 million after arriving from Bradford City following a loan spell. The Bermuda international started his career in his native Bermuda with the Dandy Town Hornets. Wells then spent the 2010 season in the USL PDL with the Bermuda Hogges before coming to England to attend the Richmond International Academic and Soccer Academy in Leeds also playing club football with local non-league team Eccleshill United. On the opening day of January 2011, following trials, Wells joined Carlisle United. In late June 2011, Wells went on trial with Bradford City before signing a one-year contract with the club in July 2011. In January 2014, Wells signed a four-and-a-half year contract with Huddersfield Town for an undisclosed club record fee and has since made over 40 appearances scoring 13 goals for the Terriers.
