Burnley have reportedly agreed a deal for Huddersfield Town striker Nahki Wells.

Sean Dyche, Manager of Burnley gives his team instructions during the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Burnley at Wembley Stadium on August 27, 2017 in London, England.

Burnley have already signed Chris Wood from Leeds United, but it seems Sean Dyche is still looking to add more fire-power to his attacking unit.

According to reports from The Mirror (Transfer live blog; 14:24 pm) Burnley have agreed a deal with Huddersfield for striker Nahki Wells.

BBC Sport claimed earlier in the day that Burnley were in advanced talks to sign the striker. And it seems a deal has been reached, with the fee reported to be around £5 million.

Wells joined Huddersfield from Yorkshire rivals Bradford City in 2014, and scored 10 goals last season helping The Terriers win promotion to the Premier League.

Wells is not part of Terriers boss David Wagner’s plans, and the 27-year-old Bermuda forward is yet to feature for the club this season.

According to the Daily Mail, Leeds United were interested in signing the forward, as they seek to replace last season's leading goalscorer Chris Wood.

Leeds have signed Jay-Roy Grot from NEC Nijmegen last week, but one feels that more attacking options are needed.

The Mirror adds that Dyche has tracked Wells for some time now and feels that he can inject pace into the side.

Dyche already has Ashley Barnes, Chris Wood and Sam Vokes as strikers in his ranks, and the addition of Wells will only add strength and depth to the squad.
