The 18-year-old has secured a move to Europe following his great performance for Wits’ reserve side in the Multichoice Diski Challenge.
Jordan will be with the Portuguese outfit on loan for a year with an option to make the transfer permanent.
Jordan’s agent, Glyn Binkin, confirmed the move on his Twitter account.
“For any South African player it is a dream to play in Europe,” the 18-year-old told Sporting’s website.
“To do it at Sporting CP is a great achievement and I’m now preparing myself to do my best and help the club in any way that I can.
“As a player I like to score as many goals as possible and decide games. I want everyone to see the potential in me that the club saw.”
Congratulations to TPC client Liam Jordan on signing for Sporting Lisbon. I know Kerryn is proud of him right now. pic.twitter.com/EAkebijgoX
