LEE IN TO REPLACE THOMAS
KWAME Thomas has returned to Derby County from his spell at Blackpool on a busy loan deadline day that saw the Tangerines bring in Elliot Lee.
The West Ham striker is highly rated by the coaches at Upton Park, and was one of a number of players Blackpool coach Neil McDonald enquired about after Thomas was recalled by Derby.
But McDonald admitted it was a day of mixed emotions after Thomas’ departure.
“We’re disappointed to lose Kwame,” he said. “He has developed as a player with us and played first-team football on a regular basis.
“We thank him for his contribution and wish him the very best for the future.”
