Bradford City bring in striker Nahki Wells

Bradford City manager Peter Jackson has given a one-year contract to striker Nahki Wells after he impressed while on trial with the club.

The 21-year-old Bermuda international, who was released by Carlisle last season, has been trying to earn a deal since the start of pre-season training.

"I believe I have the ability to get in the side and score some goals," Wells told BBC Radio Leeds.

"I feel that if I'm given the chance I'll take it."

City manager Peter Jackson said: "He has done really well and has got potential.

"He is one of the quickest players I have seen. When he has come on in games, he has changed them. We have got a lot to work with at the moment and I just thought he was worth a chance until the end of the season.

"One thing we talked about all last season was that bwe didn't have pace in the side. If you look at the side now then we have a lot of it in the side, and that's one thing I wanted to improve and we have improved since the end of last season."

Wells made three substitute appearances for Carlisle last season without scoring.
