NEC Nijmegen Sign Jordan Larsson in Move Nobody Expected

Jordan Larsson is officially an NEC Nijmegen player – after completing a move that none of us expected.

The Swedish 19-year-old made the breakthrough at Helsingborgs in his homeland over the last two years and earned even more of a reputation because he’s the son of Celtic legend Henrik.

His form even earned an Under 21 call-up for his country last season, while reports linked him with moves to Celtic, Rangers and a host of other clubs.

Helsingborgs relegation at the end of the most recent Allsvenskan signalled the end of his dad Henrik’s tenure as manager there – and Jordan’s exit appeared imminent.

But now that he has left, we can’t be the only ones surprised that he’s chosen Eredivisie side NEC Nijmegen?

Considering Larsson was linked with some top clubs, including Scotland’s big two, it’s a coup for NEC that they’ve managed to sign him.

They currently sit 12th in the Eredivisie table with 19 points from 17 games and they’ll be hoping Larsson can provide the quality in the final third that they need to improve their position.
