Wise swoops for Thompson

12 January 2007 02:53
Celtic midfielder Alan Thompson has completed his move to Championship strugglers Leeds United. The 33-year-old has signed an initial deal that will keep him at Elland Road until the end of the season. The former Bolton Wanderers and Aston Villa midfielder, who won one cap for England, becomes United manager Dennis Wise's sixth signing of the month following the acquisitions of Tore Andre Flo, Armando Sa, Matt Heath, Robbie Elliott and Tresor Kandol. Thompson made 158 SPL appearances for the Bhoys following his transfer to Parkhead from Villa in September 2000. However, he has not played a first-team match for Gordon Strachan's side this term.
