Jay Simpson: Leyton Orient sign former Arsenal & Hull City forward
League One side Leyton Orient have signed former Arsenal and Hull forward Jay Simpson on a free transfer.
The 25-year-old, who has spent the last year playing for Buriram United in Thailand, has agreed a three-year contract with the O's.
Simpson began his career with Arsenal but only made three senior appearances before joining Hull in 2010.
"It's a club that is going places and I want to be a part of it," Simpson told the Leyton Orient website.
Simpson scored seven goals in 47 games for Hull in 2012-13 before moving to Thailand last September. His move to east London is subject to international clearance.
The former England Under-18 international has also had loan spells at Millwall (twice), West Brom and QPR.
In total he has scored 35 goals in 187 league appearances in England.
