Exclusive: Huddersfield Town in advanced talks to sign Thomas after Charlton bid rejected

Huddersfield Town are in advanced talks to sign Boreham Wood attacker Sorba Thomas, Football Insider can reveal.

The 21-year-old is in high demand after the Wood placed him on the transfer list in October to push through an EFL move.

A recruitment source has told Football Insider Charlton Athletic bid for him but had a six-figure offer rejected.

Addicks manager Lee Bowyer revealed to the press earlier this month he was interested in Thomas but expected other clubs to be so too.

The National League side decided to place him on the transfer window after a move away in the last window fell through.

A graduate of Boreham Wood’s academy, Thomas impressed at the back end of last season as he led the London club into the play-offs.

He found the net five times in 34 games last season and has continued his form this campaign netting three goals in 10 league appearances.

Operating primarily as a right-winger, Thomas can also play up front, on the left and behind the striker.

The Englishman got a chance to test himself against Championship opposition Millwall on Saturday in Boreham Wood’s first-ever FA Cup third-round tie.

The second-tier outfit ran out 2-0 winners at Meadow Park but Thomas will be hoping it is not the last time he faces Championship opposition this season.

Huddersfield are currently 13th in the division and are six points off the play-offs.

Incidentally, they host Millwall next Wednesday after a trip to high-fliers Watford on Saturday.
