According to a report, Newcastle look likely to hold off Rangers interest to sign SPFL teenager Reagan Thomson (The Sun).

The Queen’s Park kid has been long touted for a move to a big club, with interest growing in him this season. He has made a handful of appearances for the Spiders’ senior side and has drawn interest from the likes of Newcastle and Rangers.

It’s the Toon though that are set to win his signature.

Newcastle show they want Thomson

Newcastle were said to have offered £35,000 for Thomson recently. They have now upped that offer and Rangers can’t compete with whatever has been laid down by the English side reportedly.

Reserve football has also swung it for Thomson the report states. He will agree personal terms before heading south of the border next month.

Having been chased by several senior sides in recent months, it was only a matter of time before Thomson moved on. Queen’s Park can only hold him back for so long and now Thomson will likely take the next steps of his career at the Toon.

You’d like to think this is a deal that’ll get over the line quickly now.
