Nahki Wells believes he could still have a future at Burnley after rediscovering his goalscoring touch at Queens Park Rangers.
The Bermuda international joined Burnley in a £5million deal from Huddersfield in 2017 but his first season at Turf Moor saw him dogged by an ankle injury that restricted him to just 10 appearances under Sean Dyche, totalling a mere 66 minutes of action.

He joined Championship club QPR on a season-long loan deal back in August but admits he still considers himself a part of Burnley’s future.
“Of course I keep an eye out for what Burnley are doing, they are my parent club and after us it is the first result I look for,” Wells told reporters on Saturday after he scored QPR’s winner against Middlesbrough.
“There is a relationship still between me and Burnley. I am contracted to have a future there but right now I am loving my time at QPR.”
Wells’ goal on Saturday was his fifth of the season and, after a slow start during which he failed to score in his first nine appearances, he has now scored five in his last nine games.
“Goalscoring is a habit and I went through a spell of not scoring at QPR even though throughout that time I felt I was playing well and contributing,” added Wells.
“I just had to slightly re-analyse what I needed to do in order to get those goals. You get patches where you don’t score and patches where you do, and I am back scoring.”
