Boston Town defender Jordan Nuttell has jetted out to Finland in a bid to earn a deal with Palloseura Kemi Kings.

The Poachers are without a fixture this weekend, which allowed the 18-year-old (pictured) to link up with Tommy Taylor’s side, which currently play in the Kakkonen, the country’s third tier.

Boston manager Nathan Collins is backing Nuttell for a bright future, either in Finland or back in Britain.

He told The Standard: “Hopefully Jordan can do well out there and earn himself a contract.

“He has been outstanding for us, and if things don’t work out there I’ll definitely be putting his name forward to a couple of clubs in the summer.

“I think he’s got the attitude and attributes to go far in the game.”

Nuttell began the season with Boston United, where his dad Micky played under Taylor during his stint managing the Pilgrims.

But after failing to break into United’s first team he moved to Tattershall Road in search of match action.

Although Nuttell was classed as a forward with the Pilgrims, it is as a central defender that he has caught the eye at Town.

Collins added: “He can also play up front, and he’s a good forward.

“But I think it’s at centre half where he plays to his potential the most.

“I’ve seen defenders at pro clubs who aren’t as good or as talented as Jordan Nuttell.”
