Huddersfield Town are set to sign Canadian goalkeeper Simon Thomas after a successful trial period.

The 21-year-old will sign a one-year-deal at the League One side.

Manager Lee Clark told the club website: external-link"We have already seen potential in Simon that we want to explore further.

"Simon will form part of our development squad and share time on the pitch with Lloyd [Allinson], another promising player from our academy."

Thomas spent the final three months of last season on trial with Huddersfield and will continue his development under their goalkeeping coach John Vaughan.

"Having worked with Simon for an extended period of time, I believe he has good potential as a goalkeeper," Vaughan said.

"He has all the raw ability he needs and I believe he has already benefited from the work we have put in together."

Born in Canada, Thomas progressed through the ranks at MLS side Vancouver Whitecaps and made his senior debut in September 2010 before moving to Huddersfield on trial.
