Bradford boss rubbishes reports of QPR bid for Wells

Aug 30 2013, 4:30am CDT | by IANS

London, Aug 30 (IANS/CMC) Bradford City manager Phil Parkinson has rubbished reports of an imminent 3 million pounds bid from Queen's Park Rangers for in-form Bermudan international striker Nahki Wells.

London, Aug 30 (IANS/CMC) Bradford City manager Phil Parkinson has rubbished reports of an imminent 3 million pounds bid from Queen's Park Rangers for in-form Bermudan international striker Nahki Wells.

English tabloids this week said the Championship club's manager, Harry Redknapp, was set to launch a bid for Bradford's leading scorer, reports CMC.

Wells, 23, scored 26 goals for Bradford City last season when the club won promotion from League Two.

He is already on his way to his target of 30 goals this season, notching up six goals from five matches, and Saturday became the first player in Bradford's history to score in eight successive matches as he converted both goals in City's 2-0 home win against Sheffield United.

Bradford have placed a gag order on Wells, preventing him from speaking to the media, until after the transfer window closes next week but Bermuda legend Clyde Best, who played with Redknapp at West Ham United, thinks a move to QPR would be a great opportunity for the young striker.

Parkinson says talk of a move is nothing but speculation and the club has no intention of selling.

"There are always going to be rumours. You expect that," Parkinson told reporters.

"QPR have just signed Charlie Austin and others. I'm sure they won't be interested. It's fairly difficult at this point to let anyone go because it would be almost impossible to bring someone in. It's something we don't want.

"I want to keep improving the squad and not weakening it by losing players. That's the situation."

He added: "Nahki knows the work that went in from the team on Saturday to make sure those goals were winning goals. He understands that.

"He is getting the headlines, which is great, but it was a terrific performance from the whole team."

Liverpool’s clash with Chelsea at Anfield was one of the iconic matches of the 2013/14 season, and the two longstanding rivals will lock horns again on Matchday 11. And on the cusp of what’s always an engrossing occasion, there’s been something of a role reversal for the two sides. The Reds looked to be storming away with the league title late last season, while Chelsea were trailing in their relentless goalscoring wake. But Steven Gerrard’s infamous slip di ...

Isla: It’s nice to have continuity at Queens Park Rangers, I wasn’t always useful at Juventus

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Mauricio Isla has revealed that he’s happy to be playing regularly for his new club and wishes he could have been more useful during his time with Juventus. The 26-year-old arrived at the Hoops on a season-long loan from the Bianconeri over the summer, with the Premier League side having the option to make the deal permanent at the end of the 2014-15 campaign, and he admits that he’s been enjoying life in England now that he has secured a role in coach ...

Rio Ferdinand's 'Sket' Tweet Proves He Still Needs Educating in Self-Awareness

Nov 3 2014 5:35am CST | Source: Bleacher Report

Whatever else was hidden by the footballing talent that enabled Rio Ferdinand to become one of the world’s finest defenders didn’t include a gift for acute self-analysis. Certainly not in 2003, when he missed a drug test at Manchester United’s training ground and was withdrawn by the FA from England’s forthcoming European Championship qualifier in Turkey (prior to the inevitable long-term suspension that foll ...
