Wells wins League One player of the month award

London, Sep 7 (IANS/CMC) Bermudian striker Nahki Wells has been named England's League One player of the month for August.

The Bradford City striker, 23, received the award Friday after a superb start to the season that saw him net five times in the league and equal the club record of scoring in eight consecutive games, reports CMC.

Wells also scored in a League Cup match.

Championship clubs Queen's Park Rangers and Watford were reportedly keen to sign Wells before the summer transfer window closed Monday but Bradford said the former Dandy Town player was not for sale.

Wells remains committed to helping the club win a second successive promotion, having been promoted from League Two at the end of last season.

He told Bradford's Telegraph and Argus newspaper: "I'm a contracted Bradford player and I'm enjoying my football. I want the same goal as the club and that's to get up and play in the Championship as soon as possible.

"That's what I'm going to do and hopefully come the end of the season we can all have that advantage."

He added: "I've started well but I don't want to take too many of the plaudits because without the team I wouldn't be firing like I am.

"I want to thank the lads that have helped me win this - it's a team award really."

Bradford, currently seventh, take on fourth-placed Brentford at Valley Parade Saturday night.
