AMMAN — Eighteen-year-old Ghassan Abu Hassan has become the first Jordanian footballer to sign a professional contract with a British football club, according to the Jordan Olympic Committee News Service. 

The defender has put pen to paper with Bristol Rovers and will initially join the club’s U-23 squad under the guidance of Chris Hargreaves.

“I am delighted that Ghassan will be joining us for the start of pre-season training and would like to formally welcome him to Bristol Rovers,” said Hargreaves.

“I am sure he will be welcomed into the squad we are assembling for next season and look forward to working with him and giving him every opportunity of progressing as a professional footballer.”

Ghassan, who began his career with Jordan Youth Club, has since graduated to the Jordanian U-19 side for whom he has won 11 caps.
