Description

Jordan Luke Rhodes (born 5 February 1990) is a professional footballer who plays as a striker for Sheffield Wednesday and the Scotland national team.

He started his career at Ipswich Town and after loan spells at Oxford United, Rochdale and Brentford he joined Huddersfield Town. In the 2011–12 season, he was the top scorer in England with 36 league goals, breaking Huddersfield's club record for most league goals scored in a season.

In August 2012, he became English football's most expensive player outside the top flight when he joined Blackburn Rovers for £8,000,000, equalling Blackburn's record transfer fee.

Born in England, Rhodes opted to play for Scotland, for whom he had become eligible through school attendance while his father Andy Rhodes played as a goalkeeper for Scottish football clubs. Rhodes has represented Scotland at both U-21 level and as a full international.

Rhodes was born in Oldham, Greater Manchester, while his father, English footballer Andy Rhodes, was playing for Oldham Athletic. Rhodes senior moved to Scotland later that year when he joined Dunfermline Athletic and stayed in Scotland until 1998 also playing for St Johnstone and Airdrieonians. There were breaks in the time Andy Rhodes spent playing in Scotland when he had loan spells at Bolton Wanderers and Scarborough. Thus Jordan Rhodes spent much of his childhood living and being schooled in Scotland. Initially he followed in his father's footsteps and played as a goalkeeper as a youngster.

Andy Rhodes joined Ipswich Town as a coach in 2004. Jordan attended Kesgrave High School in Ipswich through his secondary school years where he was scouted and recruited by Ipswich Town in 2004.
