Blackpool FC is delighted to announce the signing of Jordan Gabriel on a season long loan from Nottingham Forest.
The highly-rated full-back joins the Seasiders from the Championship Club, where he has spent the past five years developing through their Academy. The 22-year-old enjoyed a successful loan spell at Scunthorpe United last season, before going on to represent Forest twice this campaign in the league and cup.
Gabriel, who is described as a fast and tricky full-back, will add further strength and competition to Neil Critchley’s side for the 20/21 season.
On signing for Blackpool, Jordan said:
"I'm pleased to have signed for Blackpool and can't wait to get started.
"It's a great Club going in a good direction and I believe it's the right time to join.
"I feel ready to make the step up and believe I can bring a lot to the team this season. I'm looking forward to getting started."
Neil Critchley said:
“Jordan is a talented modern day full-back, and is someone I have been aware of from his early years at Arsenal and Nottingham Forest.
“He will bring athleticism to the right hand side of the team, and he is very good defensively in one v one situations. He’s very highly thought of at Nottingham Forest and we’re thankful to them for allowing us to sign Jordan for the season.
“Jordan is someone who I feel will fit in well within the squad we are building here, and he brings healthy competition to the defensive third of the pitch. I look forward to working with him throughout the season.”
