Jamie Thomas Signs For Clarets
Burnley Football Club have today confirmed the signing of young forward Jamie Thomas on a free transfer. The former Bolton Wanderers man has signed a two year contract with a further year’s option in the club’s favour.
Thomas, who will join up with the Development Squad is looking forward to continuing his progression at a place that has always been close to home. Thomas appeared twice on the substitutes’ bench for Bolton Wanderers against Hull City and Cardiff City in the Sky Bet Championship.
The Wales U19 international reflected on that taste of first team action as something that drives him on, as he looks to progress through the ranks at Turf Moor.
Speaking about signing for the Clarets Jamie Thomas said, “I’m absolutely delighted and looking forward to getting started now in pre season and hopefully hitting the ground running.
I feel it’s a place that’s close to home, as my dad was born in Burnley so it’s close to me and my family. I feel I can continue progressing and push on to eventually try and get into the first team.
I’ve been shown around the training ground and I thought the facilities and the plans for the future we excellent so it made me want to come here even more. I also love going away with Wales as you get to meet new lads from different clubs so it’s always a pleasure to represent my country.
I can play as a number ten or a number nine and I like to create and score goals. My aim is to get to know my team mates here at the club and to enjoy my time at the club.”
