Thomas Joins Colchester United On Loan

Thomas Joins Colchester United On Loan

Casey Thomas has joined League One side Colchester United on loan to get some much needed first team experience.

The attacking midfielder, who can also play as a striker has joined Colchester on an emergency loan deal until the New Year.

He has joined the club in time to be available for their game tomorrow against Tranmere Rovers.

Despite showing glimpses of his potential particularly when Paulo Sousa was in charge, the 20 year-old has struggled to feature in the side under current boss Brendan Rodgers.

Thomas has previously had loan spells with local Welsh teams such as Port Talbot and Newport, and he's now looking forward to joining a Football League team.

'It's important I try and get some Football League games under my belt at my age. I've had spells on loan at Newport and Port Talbot, so this is the next step for me.

'I can't wait to go there and hopefully play some first-team games.

Watching the likes of Jazz (Richards) and Joe (Allen) progress as youngsters has really spurred me on. It shows what can be achieved as a local youngster coming through the ranks at Swansea.

'I feel more comfortable and confident as a person and a player this season. I really don't mind where I play because in the modern game you have to be flexible and versatile.

'I'm looking forward to helping Colchester as much as I can. The manager has told me it is a good club with a good manager who has a lot of experience. I'm sure I can learn a lot there and the loan spell can only help me develop.'
