Reported speech case:

He said I would do it

Direct speech:

He said, "I will do it."

My sentence:

He thought that he WILL / WOULD do it tomorrow


In my sentence should I use 'would' verb (because the case is equal to reported speech)?


I should leave 'will' verb because the case is completely different to reported speech case


You can use either

He thought he would
He thought he will

it depends on what you want to say and mood to be.
