It’s safe to say that Boreham Wood forward Sorba Thomas was a player in significant demand during the summer transfer window.
League One side Charlton Athletic saw a bid rejected by the National League club for Thomas’ services, with QPR and Barnsley also being interested in a deal to sign the 21-year-old.
Thomas has since been placed on the club’s transfer list with Boreham Wood, which is likely to see club’s reignite their interest in landing his signature.
The forward has been impressive for Boreham Wood in the last couple of seasons, with the club currently sat 16th in the league table this term.
Speaking in a recent interview (quotes sourced from London News Online), Thomas has revealed that he is happy with the National League club at this moment in time, and is keen to win promotion with them this season, which could hint that his short-term future remains with them despite interest from elsewhere.
“I have a relationship with the gaffer, with the chairman and they did let me know. We had a little conversation but like I said, I’m a Boreham Wood player until I’m told that I’m not.
“I’ll put 100 percent into the games for the team and get the boys to where they should be – in the football league. That’s our aspirations for this year. We’re still on course. Let’s see what happens.
“I’m happy where I am at the moment. I’m happy where I am with my football. I love my teammates. I’ll do everything I can to put 100 percent into every game I play for the club and hopefully we’ll get promotion this year.”

This is an interesting update.
I was surprised to see Thomas remain with Boreham Wood in the summer, especially with the likes of Charlton, QPR and Barnsley all lurking to sign him.
But it was good to see Boreham Wood stand firm in keeping him with them, and I think he’ll play a key role in their bid for promotion this season.
I really wouldn’t be surprised to see him move on at the end of this year’s league campaign though, as the prospect of playing at a higher level will surely tempt him elsewhere.
