Les Ferdinand, Director, and head coach of a professional English football club, Queens Park Rangers discusses the leaving of Nahki Michael Wells and Toni Leistner under the January transfer window. Les Ferdinand admits that it would be very difficult to sign Wells permanently but despite this, they made the best offer for him. But Wells has decided to move.
Les also considers the leaving of Toni Leistner as the best decision for football clubs around the globe. Nahki Wells is a Bermudian professional footballer and is currently playing as a forward for Bristol City. He had scored 1 goal in 6 appearances for his new club. Other than this, he has scored 12 goals in just 19 appearances for his country, Bermuda.
Toni Leistner is a German professional footballer who plays as a defender for FC Cologne. Burnley Football Club recalled Wells from the loan in January and then sold him to the Bristol City. Toni Leistner left the club to join FC Cologne on loan. Josh Scowen, Matt Smith and Jan Mlakar also left the club, while Jack Clarke from Tottenham is the only player to join the club on loan.
In an interview, Ferdinand mentioned that Nahki Wells was performing very well for their club, but they couldn’t manage to buy him. The director added that after arriving on loan in the club from Burnley his only job was to score for the club. And he performed his job very well. He scored 20 goals in 66 appearances for QPR. But Bristol provided him with a better offer so he decided to go there. On being asked about Toni he said that Leistner always wanted to play in the Bundesliga and when he was dropped from the team, he expressed his desire to leave the club. And the club made the best decision to leave him.
