A FORMER Republic of Ireland under-19 and under-21 international, Tom joined the Brewers on a two-year deal after being released by Premier League Southampton in the summer.
A versatile left-footed player Tom has played as a left-sided or central defender/midfielder throughout his youth career with the Saints after arriving at St Marys in 2015.
After signing a new contract in 2019 Thomas headed out on loan to League One side Gillingham for the 2019-20 season and impressed enough to be asked back for a second successive loan spell with the Gills last season, again impressing with his versatility.
Albion fought off competition for Tom’s signature in the summer to make him a part of the Brewers midfield for the new season.
