Former Reading defender Terell Thomas' links to Championship rivals Birmingham City have been quashed by an outlet in the Midlands.

Thomas joined the Royals, initially on a trial basis, in March 2022 and managed to play the final two matches of the season under then-interim boss Paul Ince.

Formerly of Wimbledon and Crewe Alexandra, the 26-year-old is one of six first team players not offered contracts at the SCL Stadium ahead of the new campaign.

Reports earlier in the week had linked the star with recetnly relegated Derby County and the Blues, but BirminghamLive have since rubbished the move to St Andrew's.

According to their sources, there is "no chance" that the London-born free agent will arrive in the West Midlands.

The Rams, with their very existence still in the balance as they try to battle out of administration, are set to lose first team players in July as contracts expire and futures still undecided.

Captain Curtis Davies recently revealed that he didn't know "if he was coming or going" as the deadline looms.

Manager Wayne Rooney has already departed Pride Park.
