Thomas torn over future
Cheltenham star striker Wes Thomas insists he would like to stay at Whaddon Road but has spoken of the personal matters at the heart of his dilemma.Twelve-goal leading scorer Thomas penned a 12-month contract back in the summer and Robins boss Mark Yates is desperate to extend his stay in Gloucestershire and see the soon-to-be 24-year-old pen a new deal.But Thomas is evidently faced with an extremely difficult family decision to make. He told the Gloucestershire Echo: "I would like to stay, I`ve only had one season here so far. Mark Yates has given me the chance to play full-time football and there`s no point me going somewhere and not playing full-time."But I`ve got a kid on the way soon and I`ve got to make the right decision for him and my girlfriend. It`s hard because she`s from London as well and she wants to stay as close to there as possible but we`re just going to have to wait and see what happens."I`ve said I`ll stay here until the end of the season but if I didn`t have a kid on the way then I would have signed a contract in December, but I`ve got other things to think about other than just me now. It`s got nothing to do with the (financial) offer, it`s convincing my girlfriend, really."Asked whether it is likely a breakthrough will be made by the end of January, Thomas pondered before replying: "No."
