Nahki Wells has handed Huddersfield Town a big boost ahead of their home clash with Fulham by telling fans: “I’m going nowhere.”
The top scorer, who refuses to rule out a play-off push, has notched five goals in as many games to take his season’s haul to 10.
There have been reports of interest from Saturday’s visitors as well as fellow Championship clubs QPR and Wolves.
But £1.3m Town record signing Wells says he wants to keep on producing the goods under David Wagner, and better 20 goals for the season.
The 25-year-old Bermuda international was signed from Bradford City two years ago and is under contract to 2018.
“I don’t really want to speak about speculation because that’s typical when you’re doing well,” Wells told Bermuda’s Royal Gazette newspaper.
“I’m in good form right now and I know for a fact that I will be at Huddersfield come the end of the season.”

Town climbed to 16th with their 5-0 home win over Charlton Athletic on Tuesday, when Wells was on the scoresheet.
“What’s more important to me is how high we can finish and how many goals I can score,” said Wells, whose side have won three of their last four league games.
“I’m still pushing for 20-plus and I’m on course to do that.
“Our emphasis is on finishing in the top half of the table. If we can keep up our form then promotion could be a late shout.
“We’re taking it game by game and just trying to play the way the head coach wants us to.
“I’m starting to put a run together and score on a consistent basis, which is something I’ve been waiting for. I know if we’re playing well and winning games I will be scoring goals.”
Wells has thrived since the arrival of Wagner 11 games ago.
“I think the key is we’re playing great football and I fit well into our system,” he added.
“I have bought into what the manager wants me to do and I’m really enjoying football again.
“I don’t think I was being played to my strengths in the past.
“But now I think the gaffer knows my strengths and is willing to work hard to get the best out of me. I’m repaying him with good performances and goals.”
