The 17-year-old, who made his senior debut earlier this season, is currently a second-year scholar at the club's Academy but has penned a deal which will keep him at St James Park until 2016.

It means the diminutive striker will continue to play for the club's Under-18s before graduating to the first-team squad in the summer.

He told the club's official website: "I'm over the moon - I can't say I was expecting it yet. I've been working hard and I've kept doing what I do, and I was expecting that at the end of the year when players normally get a decision that I might have done enough.

"So it has come as a surprise and I'm really grateful for it."

Jay made his City bow as a late substitute in a Johnstone's Paint Trophy tie with Wycombe in September before making his first Football League start against Southend last month.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
