A strong striker, Jay kicked off the 2010/11 season with a brace in Arsenal's traditional pre-season match against Barnet but moved to Hull City in August.
His three first-team appearances came in the 2008/09 Carling Cup and he netted a brace as the Gunners defeated Wigan Athletic in the competition. The striker spent the second half of that season on loan at West Brom.
