Yesterday, there was a report that shed new details on Newcastle’s pursuit of Queens Park teenager Reagan Thomson.
The report revealed that Newcastle had a bid of £50k plus add-ons accepted for Thomson. The midfielder was also due to sign a two-and-a-half year deal and link up with the U23s.
It looks like that may have already happened as the 16-year-old has put up the following image on his Instagram account along with a statement that he has, in fact, signed for Newcastle.
Former Plymouth winger Gregg Wylde also tweeted the image on Twitter, which kind of caught fire yesterday with local outlets releasing the picture. Though Wylde seems to have trouble with the spelling of his compatriot’s name.

We hope the young man doesn’t get told off for being a bit over-anxious in his joy. Our first winter signing, albeit for the Academy, seems done and dusted.
Welcome to Newcastle Reagan Thomson!
