Winger Graham Rejoins Town on Loan
Tuesday, 28th Aug 2018 14:32
Town have announced the season-long loan signing of Jordan Graham from Wolverhampton Wanderers. Graham was previously briefly on loan with the Blues in the 2013/14 campaign.
Reports in the Midlands linked Town with a move for the winger earlier this month after a switch to Wigan broke down.
“I enjoyed being here before but I was very young and it was a big step up from academy football to playing in the first team,” Graham told the club site.
“I’m bigger and stronger now and feel like I’m in good physical condition. I’m ready for the challenge here.
“When I got the go-ahead to say the deal was done I couldn’t get down here quick enough.
“I know Chambo and Skusey from my time here before and I know a lot of the other lads as well. That always helps to settle in.
“It’s a big year for me and I’m here to make my mark. I want to score goals, I want to get as many assists as I can and I want to play my part in helping the team finish as high up the table as possible.
“I’m buzzing to be part of it here and it’s a great game to start with, the derby on Sunday.
“I got to know about the rivalry when I was here first time and how important the game is to the supporters.
"Ever since then I have watched the fixture on TV because it’s normally on live. Now I’m looking forward to be part of it.”
The former England U16 and U17 international, who represented the Republic of Ireland at U15 level, has been among a number of players not training with the Wolves first team squad recently, along with Dominic Iorfa, who was on loan at Town last season.
Graham, 23, spent a short spell on loan with the Blues from Aston Villa in late 2013 when he made two substitute appearances.
Following his short stint with the Blues Graham, who will wear the Town number 14 shirt during his second spell, moved on to Bradford on loan without making an appearance and then Wolves, who he joined on a permanent basis in 2014.
During what's been an injury-hit spell at Molineux he spent time on loan at Oxford and moved to Fulham on loan for the whole of 2017/18 but made only three sub appearances for their senior side.
In total since his spell with Town, Graham has made only 18 first team starts and eight sub appearances.
Despite Graham's lack of games, Wolves took up an option to extend his contract to the summer of 2020 in May, largely so as not to miss out on a potential fee if and when he is sold.
