to Swindon for the remainder of the 2014/15 season.
Thompson has made 44 appearances for Swindon, where he came through
the academy system along with his brother, Nathan, who was captain
at the County Ground. Thompson made his first team debut for Swindon
on 28th January 2012 as an 81st minute substitute for fellow Town
midfielder Simon Ferry during the 20 away loss to Leicester
City in the FA Cup Fourth Round.
He has been capped by Wales at Under-19 level and made his Under-21
debut in September 2015 against Luxembourg.
He was loaned back to Swindon on 11th September 2015 until December.
His loan was renewed on 1st February 2016 until the end of the 2015/16 season.
Thompson finally made his Norwich debut on 23rd August 2016 in the 6-1 win over Coventry at Carrow Road in the Football League Cup. His league debut for Norwich came as a late substitute in the 2-1 away win at Nottingham Forest on 17th September 2016. He made a total of 6 appearances for City in 2016/17 before injury curtailed his season. He made eight appearances in an injury plagued 2018/19 season in which Norwich won the Championship title.
On 16th August 2019, he joined Shrewsbury on loan until the end of the 2019/20 season. "We're a little bit short in midfield, so it's important to bring those players in," said Town boss Sam Ricketts. "Louie's a great young player. Great player, great pedigree and great person. He's really dynamic."
