During the last international break, Matěj Vydra returned to  the Czech Republic team and became the first Burnley player ever to represent that country at international level. And it now looks as though another country could be added very soon to that list.

1718 burnley nahki wells 02 500x500Nahki Wells, currently on loan at QPR, hasn’t played for Bermuda since March 2015 but is not expected to make a return when they play El Salvador in a Concacaf Nations League qualifier later this month.

The Bermudan Football Association have approached QPR about Wells playing on 16th November. “We did send a request for Nahki to come back and be a part of the El Salvador match,” Maurice Lowe, the technical director of the Bermudan Football Association, said. “We got confirmation from the club. Coach Lightbourne has been in contact with Nahki.”

Kyle Lightbourne, who played for nine clubs in the Football League, mostly at Walsall and Stoke, said: “Nahki is a top quality player, a professional and our only Premier League player, so having him a part of our set up gives us that much more strike power in getting goals, an important area for us.”

Wells has played nine times for Bermuda previously and has scored five goals for them. He is currently on a season long loan at QPR and recently scored his first goal for them, the final goal in a 3-0 home win against Sheffield Wednesday. It was his first goal since scoring Huddersfield’s final goal in a 3-0 home win against Norwich in April 2017.
