Jordan Rossiter (born 24 March 1997) is an English footballer who plays as a midfielder for Liverpool, primarily based with the U21s.

Liverpool careerEdit

Rossiter is a product of the Liverpool youth system. He is very highly rated at Kirkby and made his debut for the Under 18s as a 70th minute substitute in the 4-3 defeat to West Brom on 24 March 2012- his 15th birthday. Still aged just 15, Reserves coach Alex Inglethorpe called Rossiter up to the Under 19s side for the NextGen Series tie against holders Inter Milan on 8 January 2013. With Liverpool 4-1 up, Rossiter entered the action as a last-minute substitute, and almost slipped Samed Yesil through on goal with one of his first touches- though Yesil was called offside. Upon Rossiter's entry into the match, Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler tweeted "A young lad just about to come on for a few mins for Liverpool in nextgen... Jordan Rossiter, big shout but potentially a young Stevie g.." Rossiter went on to feature quite prominently for the U18s during their 2012-13 season, racking up a total of 15 appearances, even taking the captain's armband for a number of games. His performances garnered much praise and he became recognised as one of the Academy's most exciting talents.

Rossiter entered the 2013-14 season as a more permanent fixture of the U21 side. After several impressive performances, Rossiter netted his first goal for the U21s on 4 November 2013, slotting in a pull-back from Jordon Ibe in the box against Middlesbrough. Rossiter was rewarded for his progress with a place on the substitute's bench for the Liverpool first team's away tie to Chelsea on 29 December 2013.

Playing styleEdit

Rossiter is credited as an aggressive, tough-tackling but forward-thinking midfielder, notable for a good passing ability.
