Hendry Thomas (born 23 February 1985) is a Honduran international footballer who plays as a defensive midfielder for the English Premier League side Wigan Athletic since signing for them back in July 2009 on a three-year deal from Club Deportivo Olimpia.


Early career

Thomas made his debut with Olimpia on September 26, 2001, against Real Comayagua when he was only 16 years of age. He continued to play for Olimpia of Tegucigalpa in the Liga Nacional de Honduras. He has been a regular member of the Honduras national football team since 2005. He is the cousin of fellow footballers Maynor Suazo, David Suazo and Allan Lalín. He scored Olimpia's 2000th goal in the club's history.

Thomas underwent a trial period with French club Toulouse FC. However, the trial was unsuccessful.

Move to England

In July 2009, Thomas made his move to Premier League side Wigan Athletic on a three-year deal, subject to the release of a working permit. Interestingly, Wigan also made a failed attempt to sign Thomas in 2008 after work permit issues arose but on July 2, it was officially announced that he would form part of the Wigan roster for the 2009-2010 season during which, he will wear the number 6.[2] He made his debut against Aston Villa on 15 August 2009, and assisted a goal in a 2-0 victory for Wigan.[3] In his first three matches, he won one 'Man of the Match' (Aston Villa) and one 'Most Impressive Player' (Manchester United) award.
