New Chesterfield signing, Jordan Flores, says that joining the Spireites on a season-long loan deal from Wigan Athletic was an easy decision to make.

Flores put pen to paper in time to feature in the home match with Port Vale tomorrow, 3pm and will once again work with manager Gary Caldwell – the manager who gave him his debut at the DW Stadium.

Speaking exclusively to iFollow, Flores said: “I’m looking forward to my spell at Chesterfield and getting some games under my belt, hopefully I’ll have a successful season.

“I knew the club were interested, so it was just a matter of getting everything sorted out.

“I know the manager and a few of the staff, as I’ve played under them before, so I’m looking forward to it. That had an impact in me signing here as it’s familiar surroundings and I like the way he plays.

A midfielder who can play both centrally and out wide, Flores trained with his new team mates for the first time this morning and is impressed with what he saw.

“I’m excited to get some game time here, it’s a good club with some very good players in the squad, and I’ll be looking to push on,” he said.

“The other players have made me feel welcome, it’s a good squad and today we’ve been getting ready for the match tomorrow so we’ll see what happens – I’m available for selection.

Since making his debut for the Latics at the end of the 2014/15 campaign, Flores has gone on to play to play 12 times for the Latics in all competitions.

He also has experience of playing in League Two, as last season he made 21 appearances on loan at Blackpool, scoring three times as the Seasiders won promotion to League One via the Playoffs.

And Flores hopes his experience of promotion from League Two will stand him in good stead for the new campaign.

He added: “I think my previous experience in League Two will benefit me a lot, I had a good season last season and I’m looking to bring that into this season.

“Hopefully I can bring what I know into the club and help the lads, I know what’s required to be at the top of the table so hopefully we’ll push on now.”
