Burnley X-Files: Jordan rejects Cotts for Blades

Burnley X-Files: Jordan rejects Cotts for Blades

Former Clarets left back Stephen Jordan has decided not to join Portsmouth as expected and now looks set to sign for Championship rivals, Sheffield United and make his debut for the Blades in their opening game of the season against Cardiff City on Sunday.

Jordan who was released by Brian Laws in the summer was offered a contract at Pompey by former Clarets gaffer, Steve Cotterill after being involved in their pre-season build-up. It was Cotterill who signed Jordan for the Clarets in July 2007 after he was released by Manchester City.

You cannot blame him, stay up north and Sheffield Utd are a lot more stable a club than Pompy, good luck Stephen except against us...

Probably agree with Totally. Please when we signed him, disapointed with him in season 1, preferred Kalvenese season 2, but thought he did OK in the Prem. Probably a better CB than LB for me!
