The 21-year-old moved to Huddersfield earlier today for an undisclosed fee after Charlton Athletic had a six-figure bid rejected, as first revealed by this site.
Huddersfield Town’s Head of Football Operations Leigh Bromby said after Thomas’ signing was confirmed: “The step from the National League to the Championship is a big one and we will take every necessary step to help him be successful.”
That now looks set to be away from The John Smith’s Stadium and he will continue his development in League Two with EFL new boys Harrogate.
