Wells interest hotting up

Bradford City's Capital One Cup hero Nahki Wells is attracting interest from a host of clubs, according to reports on Thursday.

Wells has been one of Bradford's stand-out performers in their sensational Capital One Cup run this season and he scored in Tuesday's semi-final first-leg win over Aston Villa.

The 22-year-old's performances against Arsenal and Villa have alerted clubs higher up the football pyramid with the likes of Leeds, Huddersfield and Wolves all credited with an interest in the forward.

Wells has been a revelation for Bradford since arriving on a free transfer from Carlisle in the summer of 2011 and he has scored 16 goals for the Bantams this term.

Bradford are keen to keep hold of Wells and they are bracing themselves for bids for the Bermudian international following his heroics in the cup this season.

Wells' agent, David Threlfall, is not surprised if the skilful striker is attracting interest elsewhere, but insists the player is focused on doing his best for Bradford.

"There is always going to be interest in someone like Nahki and he has been in great form this season," Threlfall told

"Nahki is enjoying his football at the minute and he is just concentrating on doing his best for Bradford and helping them to success this season."
