Thomas played for Sheffield United in an Under-21 game during an extended trial but the Blades need a defensive full-back.

The Blues ace started as a winger so is ideal for a team with wing-backs.

Despite being in the market for a full-back, Blades boss Paul Heckingbottom is open to signing the teenager and could rival Saints for his signature.

He said of Thomas: “I’ve not seen him yet, he played in a game we couldn’t get to.

“All my feedback has been through Del and Micky regarding him.

“We know what his qualities are in terms of his attacking intent.

“He’s a front-footed player.

“He played wing-back for us and it adds a different dimension to his game there.

“Macca [Stuart McCall] watched him in the game, but I couldn’t get.

“It’s something we’ll be led on by Del and Micky.

“If we get to a point where everyone’s happy, then we’ll come and have a good look.
