The young forward, a product of the Academy at Le Haillan, has signed up for another four years with his hometown club. This new deal will keep him at the Club until June 2019, a just reward for Thomas' excellent start to the season and some good news for the fans in time for Christmas.

No doubt about it, the Girondins have got plenty of character. This victory over Lorient made that much abundantly clear. Twice trailing the visitors (32’ and 50’), Bordeaux pulled one back before half-time courtesy of Wahbi Khazri (44’). Cheick Diabaté came on for the final half-hour, sealing victory with two goals in three minutes (64 and 66’).
