Bradford City are set to receive a fee for Premier League striker Nahki Wells via a sell on clause, according to Yorkshire Evening Post reporter Richard Sutcliffe on Twitter.
BREAKING: Huddersfield Town & Burnley have agreed a fee for Nahki Wells. Providing no late probs, Bradford City in for windfall via sell-on

This means Huddersfield Town owe a certain percentage of any profit they make on the striker. For example, IF Nahki Wells was to be sold on for £5m profit and IF the sell on clause was 20% then Huddersfield would owe Bradford £1m.
The sell on clause is apparently said by some to be 15% of the profit made on the striker, but no percentage has been confirmed as of yet. Despite this, I’m sure it will be reported widely in the coming day as nothing is kept a secret in football these days!
Nahki Wells joined Bradford City way back in 2011 on a free transfer where he enjoyed a very successful spell at the club scoring 57 goals in just 115 appearances or 7,204 minutes which works out as a goal every 126 minutes. That very impressive spell at Bradford earnt him a move to local West Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield Town who signed him for just £1.62m.
At Huddersfield Town, he’s scored 49 goals in 153 appearances which isn’t bad for the Championship. His good showing at Huddersfield has attracted interest from fellow Premiership club Burnley who have agreed an unknown fee.
Bradford fans should be very excited about this because a seven-figure sum could be heading their way if unconfirmed reports on the fee and sell on clause are to be believed. That money could be vital to a League One club like Bradford.
