Bradford City insist they will pay the £50,000 owed to a Bermudian club as part of Nahki Wells’ transfer to Huddersfield Town – as soon as they receive a bill.

The striker, who cost a club-record £1.3m in January, played for Dandy Town, who come under the auspices of Western Stars, before heading to England in 2010.

David Baldwin, Bradford’s director of operations, says the money can only be forwarded when an invoice is received.

“How can we generate the payment when we haven’t got a bill?” he said.

“Any international payments have to go through the Football Association’s clearing house first.

 

“Our accounts department have made contact with the FA and attempted to get in touch with Dandy Town.

“But until we get sent the invoice from Bermuda, we cannot send any money.”

Wells, 23, who is in line for a 10th Town appearance at Doncaster on Saturday, joined Dandy Town as a 12-year-old.

He moved to England to attend the Richmond International Academic and Soccer Academy in Leeds.

He also played for Northern Counties East League Eccleshill United before a spell at Carlisle.

Bradford signed him in 2011 and he scored 53 goals in his two-and-a-half seasons there.
