Jordan Allan has returned to Airdrieonians for a third spell as the former Wolves youngster signs a permanent deal in North Lanarkshire.

Then-Airdrie manager Jimmy Boyle decided to hand Allan a first-team debut at the age of 14, making history as he became the youngest footballer to represent a senior club in the UK. It earned him a big move to Wolves, where he stayed for four years until 2018 before spells at Cowdenbeath and Forfar Athletic alongside an Airdrie loan spell.

Manager Ian Murray still sees potential in the former Wolves kid: “We’re pleased Jordan’s agreed to come back having been exposed to first-team football here at a very young age. It was a difficult thing to handle for him, but he did well and earned a move down south which was a great experience for him.

“He gave us a hard time last year, I like the way he runs the channels and is always in and around the box, and I think there’s a lot of improvement still to come from him.”
