Burnley have signed striker Nahki Wells from Huddersfield Town on a three-year deal for £5m.

The Bermuda forward, 27, scored 10 goals last season as Huddersfield won promotion to the Premier League.

Wells is recovering from minor ankle surgery and is set to return "in a number of weeks", Burnley said.

"I have no doubt this is an ideal move for me," said Wells, the Clarets' seventh summer signing. "I feel I can go on and do great things."

Wells was in the final year of his contract at Huddersfield, who he joined from Bradford City in 2014.

He scored 48 goals in 152 appearances for the Terriers, following a prolific stay at Bradford, who he helped reach the League Cup final and win promotion from League Two in 2013, scoring 26 times that season.

"I'm here to grow," he added. "It's a step up for me and it's one that I'm relishing."

Wells joins Burnley's other summer arrivals: midfielder Jack Cork, forward Jonathan Walters, left-back Charlie Taylor, right-back Phil Bardsley, goalkeeper Adam Legzdins and striker Chris Wood, who joined from Leeds for a club-record fee of £15m.
