Birmingham striker Thomas set for Swindon move

HITC Sport understands that Birmingham City striker Wes Thomas has agreed a deal to join Swindon Town on loan.

Swindon Town have bolstered their attacking options by bringing in Birmingham City striker Wes Thomas on loan.

Thomas has found himself down the pecking order at St Andrew's this season and has yet to feature for Gary Rowett's side in the Championship.

Thomas has made only two appearances this term in the Capital One Cup and he scored two goals in the win over Gillingham in the last round.

Birmingham are happy to loan out Thomas as he is unlikely to get much playing this season in Rowett's starting XI.

A number of clubs are thought to have shown an interest in Thomas, but Swindon have moved quickly to agree a deal for the forward.

The 28-year-old started his career in non-league football before joining Cheltenham in 2010, where he enjoyed his most prolific spell, scoring 18 goals in 41 league appearances.

Since then, Thomas has spent time at Crawley and Bournemouth, from where he went out on loan to Portsmouth and Blackpool before his stint with Birmingham.
