The striker reported for training yesterday morning at the Goldsands Stadium, having enjoyed a successful month at League One rivals Portsmouth.
Thomas found the scoresheet on three of his seven appearances during his spell at the club, and this is something he hopes he can now bring to the Cherries.
“When I was here before I went to Portsmouth, the style of play I was playing is not the same that I’m playing now," he told afcb.co.uk. “I think I’ve got more of an idea now of what I can do during the game.
“I started scoring goals and once you get your first one you are confident that you are going to score in your next couple of games, and that’s what I did. Now I’m back here I feel that I’m going to be scoring goals here.”
There has been much change during Thomas’ time away from the Cherries and his form has caught the eye of new manager Eddie Howe, who took the decision to bring him back to the Goldsands.
The 25-year-old was keen to pay tribute to Portsmouth, but also explained that he has taken Howe’s decision to bring him back as a positive.
“There is a new manager in place, and you can definitely tell the mood and morale around the club has changed a bit.
“The team is on a good run of form at the moment and if we can keep ourselves on that run, I don’t see why we can’t be up there. It’s about keeping the performances going and getting a couple more good results - then we will be up there. “
"I really enjoyed the month at Portsmouth but the gaffer wanted me back so hopefully I will be in his plans. I scored a few goals and I am confident that I can do that here.”
