Jay Simpson Wants to Leave Arsenal for Hull City

Arsenal striker Jay Simpson wants a move away from the North London club to join the Championship club Hull City. The 21-year-old could not yet impress manager Arsene Wenger to earn an Arsenal debut.

Coming through the Arsenal academy, Jay spent the last three seasons on loan to Millwall, West Bromwich Albion and Queens Park Rangers respectively. The striker who can also play as winger showed considerable improvement last season scoring 12 goals in 39 appearances for Championship side Queens Park Rangers.

Jay’s improvement was also visible in his performance for Arsenal in the pre-season friendly matches. However, Wenger has still remained unimpressed and asked him to find a new employer so that he can enjoy more first team football.

Leon Callender, the agent of Jay Simpson, has claimed that his client is now interested to join relegated Hull City. Simpson recently visited the club and talked to the club officials. Callender has said that Simpson is ‘very interested’ to join Hull City as he believes it would be a ‘good move.’ However, his agent has also said that it is now down to the two clubs to agree a deal.

Jay Simpson joined Arsenal academy in 1999 at the age of 11 and spent 8 years at the academy before making his professional debut with Millwall on loan from Arsenal in 2007.
