David Wagner wants to keep star striker Nahki Wells at Huddersfield Town following speculation linking him with a move.
Wells, a then-club record £1.3m signing from neighbours Bradford City in January 2014, has scored 42 Town goals.
Three of them have come this season, and the 26-year-old has featured in the last 16 games after missing the first two of the campaign through injury.
“January is approaching and we have to talk about Nahki, just as we have in other transfer windows,” Wagner said.
“But for me, it is very easy to leave this talk behind.
“Nahki was offered a new contract in the summer and he turned it down. We left the discussion behind us.
“We wanted to focus on this season, and we can talk again about a contract when the time is right.
“No serious offer was received in the summer, if we get one in January, it will be considered.”
“But why waste energy and time talking about something that hasn’t happened?
“Nahki is still our player, and I would like to keep him. I have no aim to sell.
“He is a very good footballer, a natural scorer, and an important player for us.
“He suits our style and our style suits him, and I have no worries about his attitude amid this talk.
