Thomas: I want to stay at Birmingham

Thomas: I want to stay at Birmingham

AFC Bournemouth striker Wesley Thomas has stated that he would like to remain with Birmingham at the end of the season.

The Cherries striker joined the Championship side on loan for the remainder of the season last week.

He made his debut for Birmingham on Saturday, starting against Nottingham Forest and playing 71 minutes.

Thomas stated that Lee Clark's faith in him was a major reason behind his move to Birmingham City, the fourth club he has played for this season.

He had been linked with a number of Championship clubs after previously impressing during a loan spell with Blackpool where he had scored three goals.

The loan run until the end of the season and it is reported that the move does not include any provisions to make the deal permanent come the end of the season.

At the end of the 2012/13 campaign Thomas will still have twelve months remaining on his contract with the Cherries, but Thomas is hopeful he can stay with Birmingham.

Thomas told BBC WM...

'It comes down to how I perform - hopefully I can put in the results to win a contract here, I would be buzzing if I was able to stay here. I think if this club can sort out the problems it's got, it would be a massive club to sign for.'

'There was other stuff which I thought was going to come up, but it didn't, This one just came out of the blue, and it's a massive club and I didn't want to turn down the chance to come here.'

AFCB supporters and management had faith in you Wes, which is the reason you wore our shirt. Good Luck to you in your wish to play elsewhere, I hope it works out the way you wish.

Score plenty of goals Wes - AFCB will get a decent fee from the Blues or whoever and everyone will be happy. I'm sure I won't be alone in being miffed if it's a free transfer at the end of the season.

I hope it works out.. there's no room for people with that attitude at Bournemouth and I for one, don't want to see people with that attitude wearing the bournemouth badge. Good bye!

I wouldnt be holding my breath about recieving a decent fee for thomas from the brum with their cash flow problems - look how desperate they were to offload englands next great keeper for next to nothing! I would however be happy in letting them keep him in exchange for doing a deal for nathan redmond when we are playing championship footy next season! :-)
