Thomas has already played for two clubs on loan this season, under the same boss - Michael Appleton - but at different clubs, Portsmouth and Blackpool.

Thomas joined the Cherries on a permanent basis last January having initially impressed on loan from Crawley Town.

Blues boss Lee Clark told the club's website: "I first became aware of Wes at Bournemouth when I was Huddersfield Town manager and I've always rated him highly.

"He's strong in possession, very quick, has an eye for goal and is capable of playing in a pair or as a lone frontman. He's already done well in the Championship with Blackpool this season and he's a young and hungry player who wants to keep on improving.

"Wes fits the bill as he's exactly the type of player that I've been looking for."

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
