Turnbull Arrives From Northampton Town

Salford announced they had signed the defender via their website. Turnbull arrives on a free transfer following his release from Northampton. The defender has signed a two-year deal at the Peninsula Stadium.

The 25-year-old is a product of the Southampton academy. Since his exit from the Saints, he has played for Swindon Town, Coventry City and Partick Thistle, before joining Northampton in 2018.

He will bring plenty of experience to a Salford side who are hoping to be in the promotion mix next season.

 Jordan Turnbull Excited for a New Challenge

Speaking about his move, Turnbull said: “I’m very excited to be here, I’m happy it’s all sorted now. It’s been something that’s happened quite quickly but I’m excited for what’s to come.”

“We had a brilliant season last season, I managed to play a lot of games and like you say we managed to get to the play-offs and go up through playing at Wembley. Brilliant experience, my first promotion on my CV and I’m looking to get many more and that’s one of the big reasons for coming to this football club.”

“The vibe around the football club at the moment is very exciting and a lot is talked about promotion. When speaking to the manager the main topic was promotion, it’s what everyone wants and everyone is working towards so it’s definitely one of the main reasons I want to come and play at this football club.”

“I look to go out there and just give everything for the team. I like to think I bring a little bit of experience even though I’m quite young. I’ve played a lot of games at this level last season, I got promoted, so hopefully a bit of know-how here and there and I can help the team as best I can.”

Graham Alexander Delighted to Bring in the Defender

Manager Graham Alexander added: “We found out about his availability after Northampton’s promotion. We’re looking for a certain type of profile of player to come in, and he fits all those categories.”

“After meeting him last week up here, he seemed really excited about possibly joining the club straight away. We saw a real desire from him to come here and vice versa with us.”

“He’s just come out of a promotion-winning team from this division. What we’re looking at is players that are coming into the club from higher levels, or promotion winners, or captains; That’s the profile we set out quite a few months ago to bring on board, and we’re delighted to get Jordan’s services for us.”
