Birmingham City are considering a move for Leicester City youngster George Thomas, according to a report from the Birmingham Mail. 

The 21 year old joined the Foxes from Coventry City last summer after his contract expired with the Sky Blues.

Despite this, Leicester still had to pay the League One side £500,000 for his services due to his age.

Thomas made his debut for Wales last month, but it is understood that Claude Puel will only be willing to let him leave the King Power Stadium on loan.

Garry Monk is hoping for a rebuild at St Andrews this summer, and the former Swansea man is apparently a big admirer of Thomas.

He made 36 appearances for Coventry during the 2016/17 season, scoring nine goals, but his good form wasn’t enough to prevent the Sky Blues falling in to League Two.

He scored a fantastic goal at Wembley against Oxford in the Checkatrade Trophy Final to hep Coventry lift their first bit of silverware since the FA Cup triumph in 1987.

His form for the Midlands club did not go unnoticed and he has carried that on this season for the Leicester U23 side.

He has been a standout performer for the young Foxes and he’s been rewarded by featuring on the bench for a number of Premier League games.

His versatility makes him an attractive proposition for managers, as he can either play as a winger or a striker.

A loan move to the Championship would be beneficial for the development of Thomas and he would certainly prove to be a smart signing for the Blues.
