Joe Thomson leaves Celtic on a 6 months loan deal to Queen of South. The Scottish Championship side Queen of South announced through official website that they acquired Celtic’s midfielder Joe Thomson on a 6-month loan deal. The move is going to be Thomson’s second consecutive loan spell at Queen of South.
The 20-year-old attacking midfielder spent last season on loan at the same club, where he scored 4 goals, providing 2 assists in 17 matches.
After returning to Celtic, he had troubles finding regular minutes on the pitch, so the player and the club decided that the best solution for both parties is another temporary deal.
Thomson is a talented creative midfielder, but he does not have enough experience and physical fitness to follow the high tempo imposed by the Scottish Premiership.
On the other hand, Queen of South is fighting to enter the playoffs and the young player could make a contribution with his pace and vision. Taking all the facts, this transfer is a win-win for all three parties involved.
