Cheltenham Town striker Thomas unsure of Robins future

Cheltenham Town's top scorer Wes Thomas has admitted personal matters make his future at the Robins unclear.

Thomas, 23, has hit five goals in his last seven games and 13 for the season.

"Mark Yates gave me the chance to play full time and there's no point in me going somewhere and not playing," Thomas told BBC Gloucestershire.

"I'd like to stay but I've got a kid on the way and I've got to make the right decision for him and my partner, we'll just have to wait and see."

Thomas turns 24 years of age later this month and would therefore be potentially available to other clubs on a Bosman transfer at the end of the season if he failed to sign a new deal at Cheltenham.

"It's hard because my girlfriend is from London as well and she wants to try and stay as close to there as possible," added Thomas.

"If I didn't have a child on the way I would probably have signed a contract in December but I have other things to think about rather than just me. It's not really to do with the offer, it's convincing my partner really."
