Former Celtic youth player Jordan Lowdon has signed a two year contract with Cypriot side PAEEK.

Lowdon was a regular in the double winning sides of 2009/10 and 2010/11 but was released in May 2011 along-with others such as Stephen O’Donnell, Matty Hughes, Callum Bagshaw and Keiran Brennan.

After a season spent with the Nike Accademy playing friendlies against a variety of clubs the 20-year-old is looking forward to returning to competitive action.

“I’m delighted with the deal and looking forward to going to Cyprus,” Lowdon said.

“There’s a few British players out there and I was impressed with what I saw when I was out there for a few weeks.

“The set up in Cyprus is good, PAEEK are an ambitiouos club and looking to get promotion back to the top league.

“It’ll be a big challenge for me but I’m ready for it and looking forward to the challenge.”

“I’ve enjoyed myself with the Nike Academy, it’s a very professional set up and the coaching is first class.

“I learned a lot from Jimmy Gilligan who is the head coach, he had a spell managing MK Dons and works hard at developing you as a player.”

Lowdon added: “I had a great time at Celtic and keep in touch with a lot of the boys to see how they are developing.

“When you play for Celtic the standards are high and I’ve maintained that in my season with Nike.

“I’ve got to take that to Cyprus now but after playing for Celtic and Nike I’m ready for the challenge and looking forward to getting my career moving.”
