West Bromwich Albion winger Jerome Thomas says he is ready to fight for his place at the club bringing to an end any hope of Leeds signing the player in the January transfer window.
Leeds boss Neil Warnock admitting he was keen to bring the player back to the club after he spent time on loan at Leeds but Thomas is ready to fight for his place at the Hawthorns. Speaking in the Yorkshire Evening Post , Thomas said, “It was never an option to extend really. It was just a case of going out and getting some games.
“I`m fully focused on West Brom, 100 per cent. Whatever interest there is has to go through the right avenues before it comes to me but until I hear anything my focus is on West Brom.
“I`ve still got another six months on my contract and that`s a chance for me to help the club push on. I`m happy here, I`ve been happy playing here for a few years now and I have no plans to move on. Hopefully I can get something resolved.”
Thomas made seven appearances for Leeds after signing on loan from the Premier League side towards the end of November. Leeds won all six of the Championship games in which he featured and he scored his only goal for the club in the 2-0 win over Ipswich Town.
With chances limited at the Hawthorns this season for Thomas, it looked like Albion boss Steve Clarke was ready to listen to offers for the 29-year-old.
A spate of injuries at West Brom has seen Thomas come back into the reckoning and he made his first appearance for the club this season in their FA Cup draw at Queens Park Rangers last Saturday.
