Jamal Gay headed to the Revs?

Nearly four years ago Jamal Gay was a part of a stunning loss for the New England Revolution as his side Joe Public FC (Trinidad & Tobago) crushed the Revs 6-1 on aggregate in a CONCACAF Champion’s League qualifier. Gay, who was just 19-years old at the time, scored Joe Public’s winning goal in its 2-1 home leg victory.

Now Gay, 22, is apparently a transfer target of the Revolution according to a report in Trinidad and Tobago’s Newsday. Gay is reportedly in negotiations with MLS for a contract in the area of $60,000.

“The MLS is a good league and we are seeing more and more international players going to play there,” Gay told Newsday. “I think I will do well there but my interest is to use the experience as a stepping stone to play in Europe. My agent has been on the look-out for clubs for me and I think it seems to be looking positive.”

In addition to playing for Joe Public, Gay has recently spent time at German Second Division team Oberhousen FC, though he played only two games there. The 6-foot-2 striker currently plays for Caledonia AIA, who he joined this summer, in the Trinidad and Tobago Pro League where he’s tallied 14 goals from 17 matches.

Gay has not been part of the recent Trinidad and Tobago National Team squads, but he has recorded two goals and two assists in 10 games for Trinidad and Tobago in the past.
