Leeds United boss Neil Warnock admits the club will have to offer Jerome Thomas a permanent deal if they are to have any chance of signing the winger.
Thomas returned to parent club West Bromwich Albion today after coming to the end of his loan deal at Elland Road and Warnock says a number of clubs are also interested in signing him in January.
Speaking on the official website, Warnock said, ‘It may be either a permanent deal or nothing I think.
‘One or two other clubs are sniffing so we’ll see what happens with that one.’
The 29 year old was forced to miss Leeds game with Bolton Wanderers on New Year`s Day due to illness, bringing an end to his loan.
Thomas joined Leeds towards the end of November and he made seven appearances, scoring one goal during his time at Elland Road.
If Thomas is available on loan, the chances of Leeds signing have increased after West Brom teammate Peter Odemwhingie was left out of the Nigerian squad for the African cup of nations starting later this month.
