Thomas has been hit with an 18 month conditional charge following his actions in a Stoke City match against Millwall last season.

The defender was found guilty of assaulting police officer Sgt John D’arcy, pushing him as he was ushered towards the tunnel at the end of the match, although the player denied the charge.

Thomas was sent off in the defeat at Ipswich on Saturday, and has just returned following an injury lay-off with a knee injury.
