"Jay brings goal-scoring prowess to our team, in addition to a valuable veteran presence, as he has demonstrated with multiple clubs in England," said Philadelphia sporting director Earnie Stewart in a club release.

"He has played at the highest levels of club soccer, including in the [English] Premier League, and we are excited to add a forward of his quality to our squad."

Simpson started his career with Arsenal before subsequent loan spells with Millwall, West Bromwich Albion and Queens Park Rangers.

A transfer to Hull City in 2010 ensued, which took in another stint with Millwall, prior to his 2013 sojourn to Buriram.

The forward then ended up at Leyton in 2014 and scored 36 goals in 99 outings in all competitions for the O's, prior to this move to MLS with Philly.
