Wells Not In Burnley Europa League Team
Meanwhile Burnley manager Sean Dyche has said striker Nahki Wells is yet to make a decision on his future at Burnley.
Wells trained with Burnley ahead of their Europa League tie with Istanbul Basaksehir and Dyche said his future is yet to be resolved.
Wells was linked with a move to Derby County this summer, and held talks with the club over a potential move as part of Matej Vydra’s deal to Turf Moor.
It looked like the Bermuda international could join the Rams on a season-long loan, but that did not happen.
“It was part of the conversation at an early stage with Vydra going to Burnley, and it didn’t come through in the end,” Derby boss Frank Lampard said when asked about Wells last week.
“I am actually very pleased with our attacking options as it stands, so it was one of those that got some headlines but didn’t come through.”
The 28-year-old is widely expected to leave Burnley on loan this summer having dropped further down in the pecking order.
Wells joined Burnley a year ago in a £5m deal from Huddersfield Town.
“Nahki is fighting for his chance to play and there’s been a bit of interest in him from outside,” Dyche told the Lancashire Telegraph.

Trott & West Ham Defeat Tottenham
Nathan Trott and his West Ham United Under 23 teammates defeated Tottenham in Premier League 2 action at The Lamex Stadium.
The home side went in front in the 6th minute when a corner ends up being cleared, but falls to Samuel Shashoua. The midfielder took aim, and found the net via a curling effort that went in off the post beating Trott.
Trott in the 25th minute made a fine save from a Tottenham corner, as an effort almost looped over the shot-stopper. Trott got a strong hand up though, and gets the ball away.
West Ham were level in the 42nd minute, debutant Xande Silva found the back of the net with a powerful strike.
One minute into the second half West Ham took the lead, straight from kick-off, West Ham pile forward. Josh Cullen linked with Xande Silva and the forward skips past a tackle. He was all alone in front of the goalkeeper and coolly dispatched his shot.
West ham would move 3 – 1 ahead in the 49th minute as Xande Silva bagged his hattick. Exceptional play from the young forward, who found the net with a powerful strike from a narrow angle.
With less than ten minutes to go Tottenham forced Trott into a save to keep the score at 3 - 1.
