Speculation surrounding Bradford City striker Nahki Wells has intensified since the January transfer window has opened.

Wells, 23, has been in hot pursuit since last season, where his 26 goals helped Bradford City secure promotion to League One.

After Wolves confirmed they were unsuccessful in their enquiries regarding the Bermuda international, Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert looks set to move for the striker.

Lambert is keen to bolster his striking options after Libor Kozak was ruled out for the rest of the season, following a leg breaking tackle from Villa defender Ciaran Clark in training.

Wells was part of Bradford City’s historic Capital One Cup run and was ever present in the side that secured promotion.

The striker has already scored 15 times this season and is expected to be available at around £2 million.

However, Bradford City are still keen to keep hold of Wells until the end of season.
