Jordan Allan (born 20 October 1998) is a Scottish footballer who plays for Scottish League One club Airdrieonians on loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers, as a striker.[1]

In April 2013, Allan made his début for Scottish club Airdrie United as a substitute against Livingston in a 2–0 defeat.[2][3] Still a pupil at Calderside Academy and aged just 14 years and 189 days, Allan became the youngest player to represent a first team in the Scottish Football League,[4] and Britain, breaking the record previously established by Reuben Noble-Lazarus in January 2008.[5]

In May 2014, Allan signed for Wolverhampton Wanderers.[6]

On 30 August 2017 he returned to his former club Airdrieonians on a six-month loan deal[7].
