Queen’s management will be polishing their nails on their lapels after securing striker Jordan Moore on loan until the end of the season.

Since signing with Dundee’s U14s proving himself a prolific youth goal scorer, his career has featured less ‘window’ shopping and more akin to the pawn shop, having been a popular loan commodity since early on.

The Glasgow-born 20-year-old joins Queen’s Park from Dundee, having been loaned out to Airdrie United for the latter part of 2012-13 which afforded him valuable first team exposure.

He scored on his debut from the penalty spot against Hamilton Academical in a 2–2 draw and went on to make a total of nine appearances for Airdrie, scoring once more in a defeat to Cowdenbeath before returning to Dundee United at the end of the season.

Moore was once again loaned out for the 2013–14 season, this time to Scottish League One side Dunfermline Athletic where he was joined by fellow Dundee United players Ryan Ferguson and Luke Johnston.

He made his debut for the club in a Scottish League Cup match, coming on as a late substitute.

In his first start for the club, he scored twice in a spectacular comeback as Dunfermline beat Stenhousemuir 5–4.

In April 2014, Moore revealed he had been receiving treatment for skin cancer.

Only weeks later, he heralded his return to the game, announcing that the cancer treatment had worked and he would be returning to football after a short period of recuperation.

A spokesman for Queen’s Park said: “We are pleased to confirm that Queen’s have secured striker Jordan Moore on loan until the end of the season.

“Thanks go to Jackie McNamara and the club for making this possible.”
