However, according to the report, Premier League outfit Newcastle have won the race for the signature of the teenager.

 

Thomson will put pen to paper on a two-and-a-half year contract with the Magpies, despite Celtic making a late bid for the teenager, according to the report.

The Scottish Sun has added that Newcastle will pay Queen’s Park £50,000 with add-ons for Thomson.

Good signing for Newcastle United?

Thomson has played nine times for the Queen’s Park first team this season, according to The Scottish Sun, and is clearly a player who has a bright future.

While the 16-year-old will not find it easy to break into the Newcastle first team this season, he could get chances in the coming years if he continues to progress and develop.
