Fleetwood Town’s new loan star Jordan Rossiter is looking forward to ending his frustrating wait to get back into action.

The midfielder, 22, has joined Town on a season-long loan from Glasgow giants Rangers and will link up with his new team-mates at their training camp in Portugal this week.
Rossiter enjoyed a loan spell at Bury last season, helping the Shakers gain promotion to League One, and is looking forward to getting back in a dressing room.
He moved to Scotland from Premier League club Liverpool in 2016 and has had three injury-hit years at Ibrox.
And after that spell at Bury he is keen to keep playing. “It has been a little bit frustrating,” the Liverpudlian said.
“I just wanted to get a move sorted, get back playing and in the dressing room.
“I’ve been keeping fit and I’m sure Portugal this week will be a tough test.
“I think this is why teams go on these pre-season tours – for new signings to get used to everyone.”
Rossiter was at Rangers during Fleetwood head coach Joey Barton’s short spell as a player there in 2016.
Town first-team coach Clint Hill was also at Ibrox at the time.
And Rossiter says those two and Jason Holt, a Town loanee from Rangers last season, helped him to decide that Highbury would be a good destination.
He said: “I know Joey from my Rangers days. It is the same with Clint.
“He got in touch and, to be honest with you, this is where I wanted to come and play my football.
“I had a really good stint at Bury last season and enjoyed my football. This year I feel like I can really enjoy my football too.
“I knew Jason Holt from being at Rangers and he could not have enough good stuff to say about the place. I could not wait to get here and get started.”
