Bermuda international joins on deal until end of season
Queens Park Rangers have signed forward Nakhi Wells on a season-long loan deal from Premier League side Burnley.
The Bermuda international is the second forward to join QPR on loan today, with Brighton & Hove Albion attacker Tomer Hemed also making a temporary move.
Wells has experience of the Sky Bet Championship, having won promotion from the division with Huddersfield Town in 2017, and the 28-year-old is cannot wait to get started in west London.
“It’s a challenge that excites me a lot,” Wells told the club website.
“I have had the struggles of fighting to stay in the league as well as getting promoted. I like to think the club are getting someone who’s hungry, excited, who has experience at this level and knows what it takes to grind out a long, tough season.
“I’ve always enjoyed my visits to Loftus Road. It’s a great ground.
“I’m looking forward to playing there regularly and hopefully I can continue that run of scoring goals at home now (Wells has scored in each of his last three games at Loftus Road).”
