AFC Bournemouth striker Wesley Thomas has stated that he would like to remain with Birmingham at the end of the season.

The Cherries striker joined the Championship side on loan for the remainder of the season last week.

He made his debut for Birmingham on Saturday, starting against Nottingham Forest and playing 71 minutes.

Thomas stated that Lee Clark’s faith in him was a major reason behind his move to Birmingham City, the fourth club he has played for this season.

He had been linked with a number of Championship clubs after previously impressing during a loan spell with Blackpool where he had scored three goals.

The loan run until the end of the season and it is reported that the move does not include any provisions to make the deal permanent come the end of the season.

At the end of the 2012/13 campaign Thomas will still have twelve months remaining on his contract with the Cherries, but Thomas is hopeful he can stay with Birmingham.

Thomas told BBC WM

‘It comes down to how I perform – hopefully I can put in the results to win a contract here, I would be buzzing if I was able to stay here. I think if this club can sort out the problems it’s got, it would be a massive club to sign for.’

‘There was other stuff which I thought was going to come up, but it didn’t, This one just came out of the blue, and it’s a massive club and I didn’t want to turn down the chance to come here.’
