Cheltenham Town have today completed the signing of midfielder Conor Thomas.
Thomas, 24, has signed a two-year deal – subject to international clearance - after agreeing a move from club side ATK in the Indian Super League.
The Coventry-born midfielder started his career in the Academy set-up of his home city club before making his debut aged just 16-years-old in January 2011.
The talented midfielder went on to make over 100 appearances for the Sky Blues and also had a loan spell at Liverpool in 2011, with a view to a permanent move to Merseyside, before injury ended a proposed switch.
The former England Under-17 and Under-18 international moved to Swindon Town in 2016 before a move to India last summer.
Manager Gary Johnson said: “I’ve been a long-term admirer of Conor, having watched his career since he was a young lad and he was unfortunate that his move to Liverpool didn’t happen due to injury.
“When we were told he was on his way back from India we made contact immediately and he came down to talk to us straight away.
“Conor has a great attitude and character to go with his undoubted football prowess.
“He is a good strong athlete who wants to move up in the game and he feels he has picked the right club to do just that. A two-year deal gives him every chance to show the Cheltenham fans what I have seen.”
