The Salford born stopped joined Bolton in 2010, after Wanderers paid Manchester United training compensation in order to acquire his services. Jay has progressed through the under 18 and reserve levels at Bolton to become their Under 21 keeper, although an injury this season has frustratingly limited his appearances.
Now returning to fitness, Jay hopes to build on the impressive pedigree that has seen him appear as an unused substitute nine times in the Championship and – in the 2011/2012 season – three times in the Premier League (including against former club Manchester United at Old Trafford).
Lee Payne, head of Full Contact’s player agency team, said “Jay has an impressive pedigree as a keeper, although he has been very unfortunate with injuries in recent times that have thwarted his progress. We know all about him, and have for some time, and he has great natural ability and shot stopping prowess. Aged 21 now, the next year or so in Jay’s career is going to be crucial, as we look to help him make the transition from an Academy keeper, and one who has been in and around first team action, to a keeper who is playing competitive football.”
