Cardiff City have joined the hunt for Bath City winger Jordan Thomas, as they look to bolster their attack in a busy January of transfers.
With the club’s transfer embargo finally over in the New Year, Bluebirds’ boss Erol Bulut is ready to dip his toe into the transfer market with a number of high-profile transfers rumoured to be in the works.
With striker Kieffer Moore‘s return to Cardiff looking like a done deal, Bulut is looking for another winger to add to his roster to help feed the strikers and continue the push for promotion back to the Premier League.
According to FootballInsider, Cardiff are interested in signing the 22-year-old Jordan Thomas after a fantastic start to the season for Bath. The English winger has impressed since joining Bath this summer, netting 8 times in 21 games for the English club.
He has taken the National League South by storm, and looks set for a big move in the future – with one insider claiming he will be “the next big” star to make the move from non-league into the Football League.
Thomas previously played further down the football pyramid for Didcot Town and North Leigh before stepping up to the sixth tier in the summer. He looks to be set for a big move next month, but Cardiff face stiff competition to sign the youngster.
During Bath’s trip to Yeovil last week, 23 scouts from EFL clubs were in attendance to watch Jordan Thomas, including ones from Cardiff, Swansea and Bristol City, among many others.
Gloverscast reported that Thomas was a real handful down the right hand side, causing problems for the Yeovil defense and carving out chances for his side. Despite this, Bath lost 1-0 as Yeovil cemented themselves on top of the division.
Jordan Thomas has not spoken about which club he would prefer to move to, but Cardiff manager Erol Bulut will hope that the pull of playing with internationals like Aaron Ramsey, Kieffer Moore and Dimitrios Goutas will help convince the young English to join the Bluebirds.
