The 16-year-old impressed on a tour last season and was invited to train with the club's keepers before being offered a two-year scholarship at the Goldsands Stadium.

"Jordan came to us at Easter for two weeks and did very well and we decided to offer him the chance to join our Academy next season," goalkeeping coach Neil Moss told the club's official website.

"He had offers from Premier League clubs to go on trial after playing against them on the tour, but he liked everything about the club and how he was treated here.

"I'm looking forward to working with him and hopefully between us all we can make a really good goalkeeper out of him."
