League One side Scunthorpe United have completed the signing of attacking midfielder Jordan Hallam from Sheffield United, the club announced on their official website. 

Sheffield United midfielder Jordan Hallam has signed for League One outfit Scunthorpe United on a free transfer. The deal was announced on Friday afternoon, joining on an 18-month deal, which will run out at the end of the 2019/120 season.

Hallam made his way through the youth academy at Sheffield United, playing for both the Under-18s and the Under-23s. He has played only one time for The Blades, making his debut against Grimsby Town in a 4-2 win in the EFL Trophy in 2016.

In two seasons playing for the Under-18s, he scored an impressive 60 goals. He continued his prolific goalscoring when he moved up to the Under-23s, scoring 22 times. He has been on loan spells away from Bramall Lane, playing for Southport, Norwegian side Viking and Southport.

“I heard there was interest at the start of the month and it just developed from there over time,” Hallam told Scunthorpe’s official club website. 

“I think it will be hard when I go back and say goodbye because I’ve been there a long time and there have been people who have helped me through my football. I had been there a long time since the age of five, so it was hard to come away, but I think it’s the right move in my career.

“I’ve been told it’s a great club and I’ve heard a lot about it. I can’t wait to get started really.”
