HUDDERSFIELD TOWN are discussing personal terms with Bradford City top scorer Nahki Wells over a possible move to the John Smith’s Stadium, the Yorkshire Post can reveal.

The two Yorkshire clubs have been in discussions all week over a fee, which it is understood would represent a transfer record for Town.

Although no final agreement has been reached, Wells has been given permission to travel to Huddersfield to discuss terms and undergo a medical with the Championship club.

Neither club has been available for comment today but the Yorkshire Post has been told by sources that the striker’s determination to join the Terriers is behind the move moving forward massively over the past 24 hours.

A host of clubs have enquired about Wells, who has 18 months of his Valley Parade contract to run, but only Peterborough United last summer and Wolverhampton Wanderers a few weeks ago have made firm offers. Wells was not interested in either due to the pair both being in League One.

Huddersfield’s previous transfer record is the £1.2m paid to Bristol Rovers for Marcus Stewart in 1996.

Providing the deal goes through, Bradford will then begin attempts to bring in a replacement.

To play tomorrow against Millwall, a permanent transfer had to have gone through by noon today. But Wells could still join on an emergency loan before completing the move on Monday.
