Winger Nathan Thomas has signed a deal with Hamilton following his Sheffield United spell.

Accies boss Brian Rice has been keen to add to his depleted squad after a number of injuries. He’s got one reinforcement in Thomas and the former Sheffield United man is available for their trip to Rangers on Sunday.

This isn’t Thomas’ first foray into Lanarkshire territory. The winger had a brief spell at Motherwell under Ian Baraclough but made just two appearances.

Thomas spent time at Newcastle United and Sunderland as a youth product before taking in a host of clubs in the English football pyramid, featuring most prominently at Carlisle United and Hartlepool United.

Most recently he has been contracted to Sheffield United but only made three appearances before his departure in the summer, having been at Bramall Lane since 2017.

Now another crack at Scottish football awaits Thomas. Rice will hope he adds creativity to his team, having lost star playmaker David Templeton until 2021 through injury.
