Last month, there were reports that Newcastle had made a breakthrough in signing Queens Park midfielder Reagan Thomson.
Newcastle were said to have won the race over Celtic and Rangers for the 16-year-old with an increased bid. A few weeks earlier, a bid of £35k had been rejected by the Scottish club.
The Scottish Sun have an exclusive again claiming that Newcastle have beaten out Celtic and Rangers for the promising youngster.
The latest news is that Newcastle have had a bid of £50k plus add-ons accepted for Thomson. The midfielder will sign a two-and-a-half year deal and link up with the U23s.
Earlier this month, the Chronicle had hinted that a deal for Thomson was getting very close. So hopefully, we’ll see some sort of official announcement soon.
The youngster has made 9 appearances for Queens Park, who are pushing for a promotion play-off spot in the Scottish fourth-tier. He won’t turn 17 until August, so he’ll be one that will have time to develop.
Newcastle have a couple of other very promising midfielders in the ranks. Both Joe White and Lee Clarke’s son Bobby have been very impressive at the Academy. Hopefully, Thomson can do the same once he arrives.
