Sunderland AFC is delighted to announce the signing of Jordan Jones, subject to international clearance.
The winger arrives at the Stadium of Light from Scottish Premiership side Rangers, signing on loan until the end of the 2020-21 season.
Born on Teesside, the 26-year-old progressed through Middlesbrough’s youth system and made his senior debut in 2013.
Loan spells with Hartlepool United and Cambridge United followed in 2015, as Jones gained valuable first-team experience before securing a permanent move to Kilmarnock one year later.
The winger impressed north of the border and made over 100 appearances in total for Killie, whilst also making his senior debut for Northern Ireland.
Jones signed for Rangers in June 2019, making his debut for Steven Gerrard’s side in a UEFA Europa League tie against St Joseph's.
After putting pen to paper, the winger said: “I’m absolutely over the moon and I’m delighted to be here. I know what football means to people in the North East and how much Sunderland means to the supporters, so hopefully I can bring them some entertainment and good results.”
Lee Johnson added: “As Jordan comes in, we are looking forward to working with him and seeing what he brings to our squad. He is a player with the type of qualities that fit the positional profile we wanted to add to the group.”
