Jorge Edward Grant (born 19 December 1994) is an English professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Lincoln City.

Club career[edit]

Nottingham Forest[edit]

After spending time at the Nike Academy, Grant moved to Nottingham Forest's academy, where he played for two years before joining the first-team squad.[3][4] Grant made his professional debut on 12 August 2014 as an 87th-minute substitute in a 1–0 win over Tranmere Rovers.[5] On 25 September, Grant started Forest's third and final League Cup game of the 2014–15 season away at Spurs, and scored his first goal in professional football with a close-range finish in the 61st minute. Forest ultimately lost this game 3–1.[6]

Notts County (loan)[edit]

On 31 January 2017 Grant joined Forest's city rivals Notts County on loan for the remainder of the season, having featured for the Reds in an Under-23 match against the Notts' counterparts earlier that day. After completing the signing, Magpies manager Kevin Nolan described Grant as a player with "brilliant technical ability (who) will add creativity and flair".[7] In Grant's second game for the club he scored a 93rd-minute equaliser in a 2–2 draw at home to Exeter City.[8] After a successful spell at County, in which he starred with six goals in seventeen games to help the club avoid relegation from League Two, Grant signed a three-year deal with Forest on 12 June to extend his stay until 2020.[9] After signing the deal, Grant told iFollow Forest that he was targeting a starting position in Forest's first-team ahead of the new season.[10]

Grant re-signed on loan with Notts County on 20 July 2017, joining the club for the 2017–18 season.[11]

Luton Town (loan)[edit]

On 6 July 2018, it was announced that Grant would join Luton Town on loan for their 2018–19 season.[12] The loan was terminated early on 7 January 2019 after making 22 appearances and scoring four goals for Luton.[13]

Mansfield Town (loan)[edit]

On 14 January 2019, Grant joined Mansfield Town on loan until the end of the season.[14]

Lincoln City[edit]

On 5 July 2019, Grant signed for Lincoln City for an undisclosed fee.[15]
