The Telegraph and Argus understands that Bradford City could earn £250,000 should Huddersfield Town win promotion into the Premier League. The Terriers signed striker Nahki Wells from the Bantams back in 2014, and it is believed there is a certain clause inserted into his deal.

Should David Wagner’s side overcome Sheffield Wednesday over two legs and then one of either Fulham or Reading in the Wembley Stadium showdown, then Bradford would pocket some extra income for doing very little. That being said, Bradford have their own play-off campaign to worry about as they soon face Millwall in the final next weekend.

Wells appeared 44 times over the last season, scoring 10 goals in the process. His last goal came in April in the home victory over Norwich City, and he’ll certainly be hoping to get back amongst the goals starting this weekend. He faces a battle to get into the starting eleven alone as he faces big competition from January signing Collin Quaner.

Although there is clearly a bit of a rivalry between Bradford and Huddersfield, for geographical reasons if anything at all, then perhaps there could be a few City board members cheering on the blue and whites over the next few weeks.

Bradford will also be due a percentage whenever or even if Huddersfield decide to sell Wells in the future too. Promotion alone for Bradford in getting into Sky Bet Championship would be worth at least £5million from the EFL in television revenue. Even losing the play-off final to Millwall will see the club receive a decent fee in relation to a share of the gate receipts.
