Nahki Wells has proved an instant hit on the training ground, according to Huddersfield Town boss Mark Robins.

The striker, who moved to the Terriers for a club record £1.3m plus add-ons from Bradford City last Friday, has been busy getting to know his new team-mates this week.

And ahead of Town’s trip to Harry Redknapp’s QPR tomorrow, manager Robins declared himself extremely happy with how his front man has adapted to his new surroundings.

 “I’m very happy with him,” Robins told the Huddersfield Examiner. 

“The goal has helped, but Nahki is a good lad and I’m very pleased with what I’ve seen from him.

“Even after a couple of days he looks like he has been with us for a long time, and that’s a great thing.

“It’s important when you go to a new club that you settle down quickly and he’s certainly done that, in what is a very happy and positive environment.

“Even if he hadn’t notched the goal against Millwall we know that we’ve brought in a real goalscorer, and I’m delighted with what I’ve seen from him.”

Wells joins Northern Ireland international Martin Martin Paterson and former Everton front man James Vaughan in the squad for the Loftus Road Championship clash.

Robins added: “Nahki is willing to work hard at his game and, being only 23, there is still a lot of improvement in him, which is a terrific situation to be in.

“The lads have been great, too, and really welcomed him into the group in our sessions at Canalside.

“We’ve got a tremendous bunch of lads in our squad at this club and that only helps when it comes to bringing in new faces, so all credit to them.”
