Stoke City Could Join the Wells Target List
Stoke City supporters have been pretty quiet in the Transfer Tavern in the last week or so after seeing their side make a slow start to the 2018/19 Championship season.
There was much optimism around the bet365 Stadium over the summer that the Potters would be challenging for an immediate return to the Premier League, not least following the appointment of the highly-rated Gary Rowett. And with some shrewd additions brought into the club, that positivity only increased, although defeat to Leeds United on the opening day followed by a draw at home to Brentford has somewhat stemmed that momentum, with the Staffordshire-based outfit currently third-bottom in the table.
Thus, there have been some disappointed Stoke fans up and down the country in recent times, several of whom are hoping their side can get their season up and running in the near future, although they may need a signing or two to aid with that quest.
And one man who could surely help with that is £4.05 million-rated Premier League outcast Nahki Wells (as per Transfermarkt).
Ultimately, the 28-year-old has struggled for regular football at Burnley since making the move there from Huddersfield Town 12 months ago, earning just ten appearances in all competitions for Sean Dyche’s side, none of which were starts.
And with no appearances so far this term in their run to the play-off round of Europa League qualifying, the writing appears to be on the wall for the ex-Huddersfield and Bradford City striker, and thus he could well be available for loan in the last knockings of the transfer window – Stoke must seek to ask the question.

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.
