London, Jan 4 (IANS/CMC) English League One football club Bradford City have rejected the first January transfer window bid for star striker Nahki Wells, who has already scored 15 goals this season.

The club confirmed on Friday that an offer had come in for the 23-year-old Bermudian, but they turned it down, reports CMC.

The bidders have not been identified but a string of clubs — including Championship high fliers Queens Park Rangers — have all been strongly linked with Wells.

There have also been a couple of inquiries from Premier League clubs, a club spokesman said.

Director of operations David Baldwin confirmed: “We’ve had one formal bid for the player.

“There will possibly be other offers. But when they occur, the club will act accordingly on the information we receive.

“We can’t do more than that. But from a football perspective, Nahki continues to go out there and hopefully carry on scoring goals.

“Unless we see any other offers coming through, which we feel are worth considering, Nahki remains very much a Bradford City player and part of our plans.”

Club manager Phil Parkinson wants a cut-off point on the Wells saga to ensure there is time to rework the squad if his main striker does move on.

Wells’ 26 goals last season helped Bradford win promotion from League Two.
