Huddersfield Town striker Nahki Wells reveals that homesickness once prevented him from joining Ipswich Town.

Nahki Wells has revealed that he once turned down the opportunity to potentially sign for Ipswich Town.

At the age of 17, the now Huddersfield Town striker impressed coaches at Portman Road during a trial period with the club.

However, despite being offered an extended stint to earn himself a permanent contract, the Bermudan was unable to get over the homesickness that he felt while in Suffolk.

"I was especially pleased to score after being on trial here," the 24-year-old is quoted as saying by the East Anglian Daily Times. "Ipswich asked me to stay a bit longer and think about it but I just didn't want to make such a big change.

"Ipswich thought highly of me but I wasn't in the right frame of mind. They wanted me to stay but I just wanted to go back to Bermuda.

"As soon as I landed on the flight home I realised I had done the wrong thing because Ipswich is a fabulous club with great facilities, stadium and fans. I'm just glad I was able to get back at this level."

Wells scored both of Huddersfield's goals in their 2-2 draw with the Tractor Boys at the weekend.
