Date of birth
Having a vast amount of Premier League written into his CV when he joined the Royals, Mutch first came through the youth ranks at Derby County before linking up with Birmingham City in 2008, where upon making his debut in the Carling Cup he became the Blues’ second-youngest debutant of all time after Trevor Francis.
His first goal was a long range effort against Middlesbrough whilst on loan with Doncaster the following year and after a successful first half of the 2010/11 season on loan at Watford, Mutch returned to St Andrew’s to make his Premier League bow for the Blues at Old Trafford that January.
Jordon also has history in terms of earning promotion to the Premier league, and that started when he played a key part in Cardiff City’s title win in 2012/13 after previously only reached the play-offs in 2011/12 with Birmingham.
Well capable of scoring spectacular goals, the midfield maestro scored a stunning long range effort to secure the Bluebirds their first away win in the top tier - and he went on to notch at Stamford Bridge, Anfield and the Hawthorns as well as firing twice past Liverpool’s Simon Mignolet at home in March 2014.
Although he couldn’t prevent Cardiff being relegated that year, Mutch remained in the Premier League when he moved to Loftus Road ahead of the 2014/15 season and, six months later, he put pen to paper on a long term deal with Crystal palace.
A steady appearance maker for the Eagles in the Premier League, in the 2016/17 winter transfer window Mutch joined the Royals in Berkshire on loan until the end of the season. He made his bow at Madejski Stadium in a 3-2 win against Brentford on Valentine’s Day ten days after he already scored on his debut away at Portman Road against Ipswich.
