Evans has said: “Jordan was a player that lost his way a bit, we spent a lot of time with him in the summer, convincing him and reminding him what it takes to be a player capable of coming into League One and being on top of your game, earning the right to go back to where he has played a lot of football, in the Championship.”

Graham started his career at Aston Villa but left for Wolves in 2014 after loan spells away from Villa Park at Ipswich Town and Bradford City.
