Huddersfield Town striker Nahki Wells has been voted by you as the 48th best player in the EFL.
Over the last month, we have been gathering votes from you to find the best managers and players in the EFL. And after counting the votes, we have discovered you think that Wells is the 48th best player in the Football League.
The 26-year-old, who for years now has been followed by rumours that he may be set to leave the John Smith’s Stadium and go elsewhere, finally had a team to catch up with this year. After the longest time when his goals were the only thing that were driving Huddersfield forward, the complete overhaul of the squad and style of play by head coach David Wagner has seen them become less reliant on Wells.
That, unfortunately on a personal level, has affected Wells overall stats for the season. Unlike in previous years where he would be the leading scorer for the club, he netted just ten times this year. While that is still an impressive tally, and enough to get him onto this list, he was outscored by new striking partner Elias Kachunga. He was also able to get two assists to help other players get the goals.
But overall his contribution to the team was great. This year the Terriers made an unexpected push for promotion and qualified for the Sky Bet Championship play-offs with ease. Now they’ll be looking to concentrate on beating Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday in the play-off semi-finals.
