Derby County fans have sent their well wishes to winger Luke Thomas who has joined Coventry City on loan until January.
The Championship side confirmed the 19-year-old’s six-month switch to the Ricoh Arena having signed a new four-year deal with the Rams in recent weeks.
Thomas is highly-rated at Pride Park, and this temporary spell away is for the benefit of the youngster who will be hoping to fight for a place in the Derby side when he arrives back at the club in the new year.
Despite having been a fixture in new boss Frank Lampard’s pre-season squad and scoring two goals in a friendly against Notts County, the winger has been loaned out.
The move was sanctioned after a plethora of new additions and the former Chelsea midfielder feeling Thomas needs more experience.
And the Rams’ fans offering their support to one of their own.
Thomas will be hoping to make his debut this weekend when his new side take on Plymouth Argyle in League One.
With that said, here’s how the Derby Country supporters reacted in Twitter to the winger’s loan move to the Sky Blues.
Right choice. Best of luck, Luke!

Makes perfect sense, impressed in pre season. Signed up to a new long term contract but he needs game time now. Come back in January even better for the experience. His time will come. Future looks bright ????????????⚽️
