Attacking player completes transfer from Boreham Wood
- Huddersfield Town completes signing of Sorba Thomas
- Attacker joins from Vanarama National League side Boreham Wood
- Thomas puts pen-to-paper on contract until 2024
Huddersfield Town has today completed the signing of attacker Sorba Thomas from Vanarama National League side Boreham Wood for an undisclosed fee!
The 21-year-old, who can play in all positions across Town’s front three, has agreed a contract running until the summer of 2024, at which point the Club has the option of a further year’s extension.
As is the case with fellow January recruit Danny Grant, Thomas will begin his work with the B Team, which regularly trains alongside Carlos Corberán’s First Team, as he acclimatises to the step up from the fifth tier.
Having started his career in West Ham United’s Academy, Sorba completed his footballing education in Boreham Wood’s youth system. He made his debut as a teenager in 2017 and has gone on to make nearly 100 appearances for The Wood as the Club has twice competed in the end-of-season Play-Offs to reach the EFL.
He joins Town amid strong interest from several clubs, having scored three times in 10 starts so far this season.
Huddersfield Town’s Head of Football Operations Leigh Bromby explained:
“We’re very happy to complete the signing of Sorba today, as there has been a lot of interest in him dating back to the summer window.
“Sorba has a lot of potential and many qualities that will fit the way we play, and this is a really positive acquisition for the Club moving forward.
“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. We will assess what is best for Sorba once he’s trained with us.
“He only needs to look at Josh Koroma as an example of the path he can take. Josh came from the same level, took time to adjust and improve and then made a massive impact on the Championship this season.”
