Reports on the Sportslens website have stated that Derby County midfielder Luke Thomas is wanted by West Ham United.

There has been no confirmation of the interest as yet from either West Ham or Derby County.

Thomas signed for the Rams from Cheltenham Town two year ago and has steadily progressed in the Derby County Academy and U23 squad this season. His reward has been a here year contract, signed in October 2017.

Luke Thomas heading to West Ham?

The nineteen-year-old has made it to the Rams first team but is still waiting his time before manager Gary Rowett commits to a starting place for the talented midfielder. His ability to run at defences has impressed more than those keeping a watchful eye on the Rams U23 games this season.

It will be a big loss to the Rams squad if the rumour is true and the Hammers decide to take the matter a stage further and put in a bid for Thomas. Thomas himself, or his agent could look to force the issue if the young man decides his future lies away from Pride Park.
