Sorba Thomas has today signed a new long-term contract with Huddersfield Town!
The 23-year-old has enjoyed a breakout season in Town colours, establishing himself as a key member of the First Team squad, leading the Club’s assist chart and earning his first caps for Wales.
Now he has committed his future to the Terriers, putting pen-to-paper on a contract that runs until the summer of 2026, with the Club option of an extension into 2027.
Sorba started his career in the West Ham Academy, but made his senior breakthrough at Boreham Wood, from whom he joined Town in the January 2021 transfer window.
He made seven substitute appearances last season and has kicked on in 2021/22. His lightning start to the season saw him named the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month for August 2021, and he soon earned his first of three caps for the Wales national team in October.
Monday night’s Play-Off Final Semi-Final second leg win over Luton Town was his 50th appearance in Town colours this campaign. His assist for Jordan Rhodes’ winning goal was his 16th this term in all competitions, adding to his three Sky Bet Championship goals.
Town’s Head of Football Operations Leigh Bromby commented:
“Sorba already had a long-term contract in place, but this new deal is reward and recognition for his performances this season.
“It’s very pleasing that he wants to commit two more years to Huddersfield Town; it shows he can see himself progressing with us.
“Sorba is a great example to the players we bring into the Club. The biggest compliment I can give him is that he totally bought into the programme when he arrived and worked with the B Team, working hard, trusting the process and the staff too. Those six months with the B Team have set him up for success with the Club.”
Head Coach Carlos Corberán added:
“Sorba’s new contract is very good news for the Club. It shows that the mentality of our Club is to keep growing, year-by-year, by keeping the players who have made important contributions to our First Team.
“Sorba has shown that, in football mentality and ambition can make a big difference in the development of players. He’s a very competitive player and is among the most minutes played of any outfielder – only injuries have prevented more.”
We’ll have an interview with Sorba from our Portuguese training camp on club channels soon!
