Huddersfield Town striker Nahki Wells, who has been linked with the likes of Sunderland, has admitted that he believes he is ready to play in the Premier League. However, he also confirmed to The Royal Gazette that he is in no rush to leave the Terriers.

The Championship striker told the paper:

“I’m contracted to Huddersfield for another two years and there hasn’t been any bid for me to worry about, so I’m not sidetracked at the moment.

“I have to respect my club, but at the same time I’m always open to trying to better myself. If a great opportunity comes along then that’s something myself and Huddersfield would have to look into.

“It’s no surprise, really, because whenever I’ve done well there’s always been speculation, some of it true, some of it not. I take it with a pinch of salt and don’t get too carried away with it.

“Whatever happens in the future will happen and I’m not too keen to attack the situation at the moment. I do think I’m able and ready to play in the Premier League.”

The Bermudan striker was only ever tentatively linked with a move to Sunderland, as reported briefly by the Huddersfield Examiner, and the interest is most likely fan driven.

But there is little doubt that the Huddersfield striker is likely to be on some radars throughout the summer.

The rapid front man had an excellent 2015-16. He especially found his form after the arrival of David Wagner at the John Smith’s Stadium. He ended up finishing the campaign with an impressive 18 goals from 47 appearances and would undoubtedly be a shrewd buy from many of the bottom-half Premier League teams or any Championship sides.

But Wells is enjoying his football under Wagner and is comfortable at Huddersfield.

Whilst the Premier League may one day be calling, for now he should remain a Terrier.
