Coventry City has officially announced this morning the signing of former Derby County striker Kwame Thomas on a two year deal.
With it looking unlikely that Coventry will be able to bring Adam Armstrong back to the Ricoh Arena, Thomas has big shoes to fill as Tony Mowbray looks to bolster his attacking options.
The arrival of Thomas will certainly provide Coventry with an alternative to their current options. With experience in League One as he has previously spent a loan spell at Blackpool, Thomas should settle quickly.
The signing may prove to be a shrewd move by Mowbray as he arrives on a free transfer so it is a low-risk acquisition that could well pay off.
Tony Mowbray commented on the 20-year-old striker, heralding the young striker’s skill set and physical attributes that he feels could be ideal for his Coventry side:
“Kwame is an exciting young striker, who will add pace and power to our attacking options. It’s good to get the first signing of the summer over the line and I am looking forward to working with Kwame over the course of next season.”
It is yet to be seen how Thomas will feature and how many opportunities the 20-year-old striker gets, but with a point to prove following his departure from Derby County, he could be one of surprise stars in League One next season.
