Ghanaian striker Kwame Thomas has signed a new one-year deal with English National League side Wrexham.
The 25-year-old has been offered a new contract despite being hit with an injury.
Great to have you for another season, Kwame 👋

Thomas is currently undergoing rehabilitation after he ruptured his Achilles tendon in April.
“It’s great that the club have backed me and showed their faith in me,” Thomas said.
“It means I’ve now got time to get myself fit, get myself firing again and not just be the Kwame from before but even better. That’s how I’m looking to come back from it.

“(Owner) Rob McElhenney called and told me I’d be looked after, which he didn’t have to do, and it has allowed me some peace of mind.
“It gives me the opportunity to not have to rush. The last thing you want to do is rush back and risk getting another injury.
“The new contract gives me and my family time to concentrate on me getting fit, with the security of another year of paying the bills.”
Kwame Thomas, formerly of Burton Albion FC joined Wrexham in August 2020 and scored nine goals last season before his season-ending injury.
