Ready Jordan

JORDAN Slew is delighted to be teaming up with some familiar faces next season, especially Argyle manager Derek Adams.

The 23-year-old forward is one of nine new signings to arrive at Home Park in a busy summer of recruitment, having played under Derek at Ross County in the Scottish Premier League three seasons ago.  

“You’ve got a great manager in Derek Adams,” he said. “I had him before at Ross County and he was fantastic with me. I can’t wait to start working for him again.

“I had a fantastic time. He’s a fantastic manager with a proven record. That was a massive reason why I came here. I know the manager has got faith in me and I’ve got faith in him, as well. It’s a great duo.

“I’d say I’ve got a lot of pace to burn in behind, I’m strong and I know, under Derek Adams, goals are going to come my way as well.

“I’ve known about the move for a couple of week now, so it’s been about preparing to come down here. I can’t wait to get started.”

Jordan made 20 appearances for the Staggies on loan from Premier League Blackburn, where he shared a dressing-room with fellow Home Park new boy David Goodwillie – one of several current Pilgrims who plied their trade north of the border at the same time as Jordan.

“There’s a good few players who have come in here that I know pretty well from last year and few years before, at Blackburn,” he said. “I know David – he’s a fantastic player. They have recruited a good bunch of lads from what I’ve seen already. It’ll be interesting to see how we do this season.”

Sheffield-born Jordan started out with hometown United, making his first-team debut while an apprentice. He was still a teenager when he made a big-money move to Blackburn, who loaned him out to Stevenage, Oldham, Rotherham and Port Vale before he joined Cambridge United. He ended last season with League One Chesterfield.

He said: “We all kind of make plans in our head how things are going to go but sometimes it doesn’t always work like that. You can get there, but it isn’t always a smooth road.

“There’s no reason why I can’t get back to the top with Plymouth. I’m looking forward to the adventure.”
