Coventry City forward George Thomas has agreed terms to sign his first professional contract with the club from July 1st.

The 18-year old has signed a two-year deal with the Sky Blues who he first joined when he was just six years of age.

Thomas had an impressive 2014/15 campaign, where he played for the Wales Under-19s and made seven first-team appearances. He is also the third youngest player in Sky Blues history after he started away to Leyton Orient back in January 2014.

Academy manager Richard Stevens said: “George has been here a really long time and we’re delighted with the progress he has made.

“He’s had a tough season physically but he has been rewarded for his excellent hard work and endeavour which he has portrayed throughout his time with the club. He’s a great talent and hopefully he can build on the platform he has set himself in the season just gone.”

Sky Blues Under-18s coach Jason Farndon added: “We’re really excited about George at the club.

“He can play in a variety of positions but I see him as a ‘number 10’. George has worked extremely hard this year and his schedule has been busy to say the least, but we’re delighted he has signed and look forward to helping him continue his progress.”
