Supporters keen for Wells to stay
Nahki Wells’s favourable rating with the Huddersfield Town fans has improved, with the majority of supporters urging him to stay with the Sky Bet Championship side.
A few weeks ago fans were calling for the club to cash in on last season’s top scorer, after Wells turned down a new contract offer. However, supporters are now singing Wells’s praises after his return to scoring form, with 79.8 per cent questioned in a poll saying they want him to stay with the club.
Huddersfield’s supporters remain keen for the club to bring in another striker to boost their attacking options and reports in the Huddersfield Daily Examiner yesterday suggested the team is weighing up a move for American striker Terrence Boyd, who plays for Leipzig in the Bundesliga.
Boyd has made just a handful of appearances this season and could be interested in a switch to Huddersfield as Wells continues to be linked with a move away from John Smith’s Stadium.
Championship side Norwich City are said to be interested in the Bermudian striker.
Boyd joined Leipzig in 2014 from Austrian side Rapid Wien and netted 28 times in 59 appearances. He has also made 14 appearances for the United States.
David Wagner, the Huddersfield head coach, has played down transfer talk, saying he will “only do something if it makes sense”.
Wagner is desperate to keep his team in promotion contention and has said he has no intention of selling Wells. Huddersfield have been one of the surprise teams in the Championship this season after mounting a push for promotion.
They take on Port Vale, of League One, in the Emirates FA Cup third round on Saturday.
