The 20-year-old is highly rated, having joined Rovers from Manchester United.Thompson has spent time on loan with FC United of Manchester during the 2018/19 season, whilst also being called up to represent both England and Northern Ireland at various youth levels.
Upon joining the club, Thompson said: “It all came quite suddenly, I only got the call yesterday! I think it’s a brilliant opportunity.
“Obviously the club is near the bottom, but I think that for me I have to embrace the challenge and learn as a player. I am looking forward to helping the lads fight for points; that’s important for me instead of playing Under-23s football, so I am really happy to be here.”
