Melbourne Victory goalkeeper Lawrence Thomas is set to stay with the Big V after their Championship winning season.
FourFourTwo’s sources close to Thomas confirms he has re-signed with the Big V.
It is believed to be a two-year deal, however it is understood there is a release clause in his contract that could let him go for above a certain price.
Then-out-of-contract Thomas was recently linked to Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr FC a fortnight ago and there was speculation there was big-money in the potential move to the Middle-East.
The shot-stopper made himself hot property after claiming the Joe Marston Medal in a stellar performance against Newcastle Jets in the Grand Final.
The 26-year-old was unprepared to give anything away at the Victory Medal on Saturday night, but gave an indication he would be remaining at Gosch’s Paddock next season.
Thomas has come a long way in his career with Victory, being second-fiddle to Ante Covic, Nathan Coe and Danny Vukovic, but has now cemented his position as a No.1 goalkeeper.
“I don’t take too much time in thinking what’s gone past,” Thomas said.
“As a club, as players, we turn up to the best training ground in the country, the best gym, the best recovery facilities, the best stadium and we turn up on game day in front of the best fans.
“To give back, to be at the best, to be on the top of the league at the end of the season is something very special and it’s what the club deserves.
“In a weird way, you tend to forget how far you’ve come, I just take each moment as it comes.”
