Nahki going nowhere

Nahki Wells will remain at Bradford City until at least the New Year after no firm offers were received by last night's transfer deadline.

BBC Sport claimed over the weekend that Watford were interested in signing the 23-year-old Bermudian and it was reported last week that Harry Redknapp's Queens Park Rangers were also eyeing the prolific striker but Bantams' boss Phil Parkinson had insisted be wasn't for sale.

“It's fairly difficult at this point to let anyone go because it would be almost impossible to bring someone in,” said Parkinson last week. “It's something we don't want. I want to keep improving the squad and not weakening it by losing players. That's the situation.”

Before last weekend, Wells had scored in each of his previous eight games, equalling the club record set by Derek Stokes between December 1959 and February 1960.

It had been originally reported he had beaten the record.

His scoring steak ended on Saturday in City's 1-1 draw with Stevenage, although he came close with a shot which forced the goalkeeper to make a superb save.
