Blackpool Confirm Permanent Signing of Jordan Gabriel
Blackpool Football Club is pleased to confirm the return of Jordan Gabriel on a permanent transfer from Nottingham Forest.
The 22-year-old, who spent last season on loan with the Seasiders, joins for an undisclosed fee, having agreed an initial four-year deal at Bloomfield Road, which contains an option for a further year.
A popular figure in tangerine, Gabriel featured 35 times for Blackpool during the 2020/21 campaign, helping the side achieve promotion to the Sky Bet Championship via the play-offs.
On his return, Jordan Gabriel said:
“I’m over the moon. I can’t wait to get started. I’m so happy to be here. I loved my time here last season and it created a lot of memories. That’s now what I’m wanting for the future. Together, with the group that we’ve got, we can hopefully do that.”
Neil Critchley added:
“Jordan made a big impression both on-and-off the pitch last season, so we’re delighted to welcome him back home to Blackpool. We were always keen to sign him after his loan spell and he’s expressed a real desire to return. I’d also like to thank Simon for his support in making this deal happen.
“Jordan’s at a good age with his best years still in front of him and the potential to keep improving. His character fits within the group we have here, and I’m sure our supporters will be looking forward to seeing him in a tangerine shirt again.”
