Wells Opens Up on his Burnley Future

IslandStats.com
Speaking to Phil Spencer from football.london, Nahki Wells has said that he 'wouldn't hesitate' if the opportunity arose to make his loan spell at QPR permanent.

The striker has been an automatic starter since arriving from Burnley last summer, and has certainly contributed with six goals and six assists since moving to Loftus Road.


With another year remaining on his contract at Turf Moor his future remains up in the air, but Wells says that if he doesn't have a future under Sean Dyche, he'd certainly consider a move to west London.

Speaking to the Metro about his future, Nahki Wells said: ‘It’s up in the air.

"I’m thankful to have had the opportunity at this fantastic club. I’ve enjoyed every second here and have fallen in love with the club.

"But I have that uncertainty because of my contract at Burnley. I know it will be difficult to get a chance there and if there was the opportunity to stay at QPR, I wouldn’t hesitate if the terms were correct.’

He added: "I want another shot at the Premier League.

"I know I have the ability to do well there but unfortunately I’ve not had that chance. But I haven’t given up."

His comments echo the sentiments shared when the striker spoke to Football.London in January.

Asked if he’s ready to lead the line for Burnley, Wells said: “That’s my mindset.

“I knew that if I had a good season at QPR, playing regularly and scoring goals, and went back to pre-season on the back of that, they’d a completely different player to before I joined QPR.

“When I joined I wasn’t fit until November and was trying to get into a side who were seventh in the Premier League and who made very few changes.

“I had a difficult first nine months at Burnley, but I know I’m capable of getting into that side and I know they haven’t seen the best of me yet.

“If it doesn’t work out that way then hopefully other potential options would open up, but my main target is to get back into the Burnley side and play in the Premier League which was always the dream.

“It’s still my motive, and if I give everything I can and it doesn’t work out then I’m sure a different opportunity will arise.”

Few QPR fans would begrudge Nahki Wells a successful return to Premier League life with Burnley, but of course a permanent switch to Loftus Road would be the preferred option.

Given the success of Wells’ spell in west London, the striker says that he wouldn’t think twice about moving to the Hoops on a permanent deal if the time was right.

He said: “I’m loving the time down here. I couldn’t think of a better place to have come or learn for a season.

“They’ve welcomed me in at the club and the manager, Steve McClaren, I have so much respect for him.

“He’s a great person, a great people-person and understands football.

“I love it here and if a potential opportunity arose to come here in the future, or next season, I don’t think I’d hesitate if the terms were right and it made sense.

“I can’t deny how much love I have for the club and how good my time’s been here.

“(My loan spell) is flying by, which is unfortunate, but long may that enjoyment continue and long may the club continue to move in the right direction.

“I’m very happy and I love it here, so if the opportunity came up then I wouldn’t even hesitate. Everyone knows what my answer would be.”
