Bury Football Club can announce the signing of Rangers midfielder Jamie Barjonas on a loan deal until January.
The 19-year-old Scottish midfielder has been training with the Shakers after some impressive performances in pre-season and has done enough to convince Ryan Lowe to add him to his squad for the first part of the season.
He made his competitive ‘Gers debut in May 2017 and he has since gone on to make a total of 9 first-team appearances and has represented Scotland at various age levels.
Speaking to us this morning, Ryan said: “I'm delighted to have signed Jamie on loan until January. We were looking for another player in that area, and with the links between Bury and Rangers, and myself and Steven Gerrard, upon enquiry Jamie came highly recommended.
“I think when someone like Steven Gerrard recommends to you a midfielder with the career he has had then you don't look twice at it; you've got to take it, and that's what we've done.
“Jamie came down to train with us for a few days, and he was outstanding in training; he fitted the bill for what we are after. I'm really looking forward to working with him from now until January.”
Jamie added: “I'm very happy to have signed for Bury on loan. Having spoken to the Manager and all the players, I'm very excited to get started down here, and I will do everything I can to help this club to succeed.”
Sporting Director, Lee Dykes added “We are delighted that Rangers have entrusted us with the next stage of Jamie’s development and special thanks must go to Mark Allen, Craig Mulholland and Steven for their help on this deal. Jamie is a player that fits the criteria for what we have been looking for and I look forward to seeing him in action very soon”.
