Borussia Mönchengladbach have signed US international striker Jordan on a season-long loan from Union Berlin.
“Jordan is a classic centre-forward,” said Gladbach sporting director Roland Virkus. “He is an anchor player in the middle, someone who can hold up the ball. A man with Bundesliga experience who will be good for our attack.”
That Bundesliga experience consists of 32 appearances, with the first coming on his debut in a 3-1 derby victory over Hertha Berlin on the opening day of 2022/23. In fact, all four of his goals in Germany’s top flight have been in wins for Union.

Born in Washington, D.C. but raised in France, Jordan – whose full name is Theoson-Jordan Siebatcheu – came through the academy at Reims before a 2018 move to Rennes, where he helped them to Coupe de France glory. A 2020 loan to Swiss side Young Boys followed, winning the title in his first season and then, after joining on a permanent deal, finishing as the division’s top scorer with 22 goals in his second year.
Union acquired the services of the nine-time US international in 2022. Jordan would go on to feature 44 times in all competitions for Die Eisernen as they made history by qualifying for the UEFA Champions League for the first time.
The striker is Gladbach’s eighth major signing of the summer, after fellow centre-forwards Tomas Cvancara and Grant-Leon Ranos, wingers Franck Honorat and Robin Hack, and defenders Maximilian Wöber, Fabio Chiarodia and Lukas Ullrich.
