We are pleased to announce that we have today completed the signing, subject to international clearance, of 18 year old Jordanian defender Ghassan Abu Hassan.
We believe that Ghassan will be the first Jordanian player to sign a professional contract with a club in the UK and he will, initially, join our U-23 squad under the guidance of Chris Hargreaves.
Chris said today; “I am delighted that Ghassan will be joining us for the start of pre-season training and would like to formally welcome him to Bristol Rovers.
“I am sure he will be welcomed into the squad we are assembling for next season and look forward to working with him and giving him every opportunity of progressing as a professional footballer.”
Ghassan, who began his career with Jordan Youth Club, has since graduated to the Jordanian U-19 side for whom he has won 11 caps.
