MLS Keeper Watch: Burn's Jordan takes Danish deal
February 25th, 2003 11:30PM



By Ridge Mahoney, senior editor

It's official: Matt Jordan has found a new club.

Jordan, 27, who has been the Burn's starter the past four seasons, has signed a one-year deal with Danish club Odense Boldklub.

The European transfer window is closed but Jordan is eligible to sign a contract because his previous contract with MLS had expired. His contract takes effect July 1 and he will battle for the starting job with incumbent Martin Jensen, who will be 30 in July.

San Jose Earthquakes coach Frank Yallop had mentioned Jordan as a possible replacement for Joe Cannon, who played out his contract and signed a six-month contract with French club Lens last week. San Jose was blocked in its efforts to have Pat Onstad, a Canadian international keeper currently under contract to Rochester of the A-League, placed in the supplementary draft.

Former Canadian international Craig Forrest has been working for Canadian television since being released by West Ham last summer. When asked last Saturday on a sports program if he'd been contacted by Yallop he didn't deny it.

Forrest, 35, is a former teammate of Yallop's with English club Ipswich as well as the Canadian national team. Forrest was MVP of the 2000 CONCACAF Gold Cup and is recovering from a battle with testicular cancer. Five seasons with West Ham ended last summer when the club released him.

The Quakes play their final game in the La Manga Cup Thursday and then travel to Florida for another week of training.
