Queen’s Park have rejected bids from Newcastle United and Rangers for Reagan Thomson.
According to the print edition of The Daily Mail (10/12, page 77), Rangers have had a bid of £350,000 rejected for Thomson. Newcastle have launched a similar bid which has also been knocked back.
Queen’s Park do not want to lose their prize asset on the cheap. He is a talented youngster who is already making strides in the League Two outfit’s first-team. While his departure might be inevitable, Queen’s Park want as much money as they can squeeze out.
Back in October, The Daily Record claimed that Newcastle were set to beat Rangers to the signing of Thomson. This report suggests that the 16-year-old was in talks with English top-flight side Newcastle ahead of a potential move.
But the latest media reports indicate that Rangers are back in the thick of this transfer pursuit. Having seen their initial bids turned down, Rangers and Newcastle could be about to partake in a bidding war for Thomson.
Thomson is a talented young midfielder who is already proving his worth in senior football. He made his debut in August, just one day after his 16th birthday.
The Scotland U17 starlet operates in central midfield and is considered a top talent for the future. With nine senior games to his name already, the future looks bright for Thomson.
