LEYTON ORIENT have today (Thursday) signed Jay Simpson on a three-year contract.
The tricky forward came through the ranks at Arsenal where he enjoyed successful loan spells with Millwall, West Brom and QPR before leaving the Emirates in 2010 to sign for Hull City.
For the Tigers, he most recently made 47 appearances in the 2012-13 campaign in the year they were promoted to the Premier League.
Capable of playing wide or through the middle, he most recently has been playing in Thailand for Buriram United and will be eligible to play for the O’s upon international clearance.
Speaking after agreeing the deal he told www.leytonorient.com: “I’m delighted. It’s a club that is going places and I want to be a part of it.”
