Jordan Jones signs loan deal with St Mirren

Winger Jordan Jones has returned to Scotland and joined Premiership outfit St Mirren on a six-month loan deal from Wigan Athletic.

The 27-year-old departed Rangers to sign a two-year deal with the Latics in the summer, but has started a total of just six matches at the DW Stadium.

After sealing the signature of the former Kilmarnock man, Saints boss Jim Goodwin told the club's website:

“Jordan knows the Premiership really well up here. He tore it up with Kilmarnock and then got a big move to Rangers.

“We’ve been working extremely hard on it over the last couple of weeks. He gives us something that we have been missing all season which is that real injection of pace and creativity at the top end.

“Hopefully he’ll assist the forward players and score some of his own as well.”

Meanwhile Jones, who has won 18 senior caps and scored one goal for Northern Ireland, tweeted: "Delighted to be here and back in Scotland!

"Looking forward to putting the last 6 months behind me and get back to enjoying football again. Good luck to Wigan Athletic for the rest of the season and thanks to everyone at St Mirren for the warm welcome."
