Goalkeeper Jordan Amissah joins Burton Albion on loan

League 1 club Burton Albion has announced the signing of goalkeeper Jordan Amissah on a five-month loan deal.

Amissah, who is of Ghanaian descent, was born in Herne and spent his youth career in Germany with Schalke 04 and Borussia Dortmund before moving to Sheffield in 2018 and signed his first professional deal with the Blades in 2021.

Amissah spent last season on loan with Guiseley and Spennymoor Town, both in the National League North, before making his debut for United earlier this season, coming off the bench to replace Wes Foderingham in the Blades’ 1-1 draw with Luton Town.

Amissah, who played 90 minutes against the Brewers in a preseason friendly against the Blades, is now eager to begin his career with the Brewers for the balance of the 2022/23 season.

Jordan will be assigned the number 24 throughout his stint with the Brewers.

The German stopper will be available for manager Dino Maamria’s squad travelling to Blundell Park.
