New signing confirmed, exciting addition and one with potential

DATE: 08.08.2017 - THE CUNNING FOX - NEWSDESK

 

The signing of 20 year old Wales U.20 international George Thomas from Coventry, could be one very exciting to follow and see how fast he will progress to the Premier League schene

Thomas has a number of games under his belt at Coventry, and has been a regular at League 1 level. He is also scoring a great number of goals and can be described as an offensive midfielder.

Of course this is one for the future and we all believe this season will be spent in the U.23 team or out on loan if a team will come in from him. City have, according to Talk Sport, paid a compensation fee of around 500 000.

Coventry struggled in the league last saeson and had to face relegation to level four of the English league pyramid. But in all the darkness they won a trophy, and played at Wembley, with Thomas scoring the winner in the 2-1 win v. Oxford.

Thomas came through the ranks at the Coventry City academy and signed a full pro contract in 2014. He has since then played 53 games and scored 9 goals in total.

To see another exciting 20 year prospect sign for City just a few days after another 20 year old, Kelechi Iheanacho coming in is very exciting and this could be great value for money, with the player being at the end of his contract with The Skye Blues.

Thomas is born in Leicester and will follow another former Coventry player, doing the same. Jeff Blockley signed for Coventry as a youngster, born in Leicester and then a few years later playing for his home town club after a move from Arsenal.

His goalscoring ratio is impressive, especially on youth international duty, scoring 10 goals in 24 internationals. We will just wait and see how fast he will get a chance to shine under Craig Shakespeare, but believe he will be pushing hard for a chance during the season.

City will probably see a few players leaving before the season kicks off and with a smaller first team squad to pick from Thomas could come under recognision. He joins Sam Hughes who also joined this summer from Chester for a fee of 125 000.

They are really stepping up chase in the market, not just for big stars from the major clubs, but also tracking talent in the lower leagues, and that is of course great to see and hopefully a new "Jamie Vardy" story can be happening.

You can watch George Thomas at "city-extra" and don't miss out the latest from "tcfone" and "retrotv".
