Queen’s Park president Gerry Crawley has issued a transfer update on 16-year-old Reagan Thomson, who has been linked with the likes of Newcastle down south.

A recent report claimed that the Toon were close to agreeing a compensation deal for the young Spiders talent (Daily Record). The youngster was reportedly watched at a recent Scotland U17s match.

Amidst recent speculation, Crawley confirmed that there is interest from England but no formal approach has been made.

He told the Sunday Post (sport, page 24, 03/11/19): “We know that Reagan is being watched by a lot of teams, some of those in England.


“We are aware of the speculation, but to date no offers have been made for his services.”

Reported Newcastle target Thomson will eventually leave the Spiders

With big names like the Toon swirling around him, it’s a matter of when not if Thomson will leave the League Two club for a potential full-time opportunity.

It is reported though that a ‘substantial fee’ is what will take Thomson away from the historic club, which will be a big boost financially for them.

So far this term Thomson has made six appearances in League Two although he hasn’t featured in their last two games, a defeat to Edinburgh City and a convincing win over Stenhousemuir.

With Crawley conceding that there is interest in the youngster, it seems as if Thomson will eventually be snapped up by a bigger club in the coming months.
