Falkirk add Jambos youngster to boost defensive options
Falkirk have completed the signing of defender Jordan McGhee from Hearts for an undisclosed fee.
The Bairns have snapped up the 21-year-old on a one-year deal, with an option to extend that contract further until 2019.
He’s the second defensive addition for Peter Houston’s side in 24 hours – after Conrad Balatoni joined last night.
Houston told the club’s website, “Jordan is a player of real quality, but also one with massive potential still to fulfill in the game.
“He is a player who is highly recommended by a number of people and at the age of just 21 will be a real asset to this club.
“I have said all along that I was looking to strengthen with two more players and both Jordan and Conrad Balatoni who we signed yesterday were my key targets.
“I am really pleased to have them both on board as I feel that we needed to add in these areas and both with all strength [sic] to our defensive options.
“Both Conrad and Jordan trained with the team this morning and already you can see they are settling in well to the group.”
The new signing added, “I am delighted to be here.
“This is a really big club with good ambitions to get back into the top flight.
“It’s where it belongs and I really hope to be able to help it get there.”
