Playing Career

Gray joined Birmingham City FC Academy in 2006 as an under-11 from the Cadbury Athletic FC junior team. After completing a two-year scholarship, Gray progressed to the first team, making his debut in October 2013, signing his first contract shortly after. After starting well in 2014-15, Gray was linked with a £½m move to Crystal Palace FC, which was duly rejected. As well as links to Liverpool FC, Newcastle United FC and Tottenham Hotspur FC. AFC Bournemouth offered £5m in the January 2015 transfer window, again rejected. Gray eventually transferred to Leicester City FC for £3.7m on 4 January 2016. Gray signed for Bayer Leverkusen, of the Bundesliga, on 31 January 2021. Made five+five Bundesliga appearances, scoring once, up until his return to the Premier League when Everton FC signed him on 22 July 2021 for a £1.7million transfer fee. After helping Everton survive relegation twice, he was released to join Saudi Pro League club, Al-Ettifaq FC on 6 September 2023 for a £10 million fee, made his debut as a substitute against Abha on 16 September and has since played fourteen+one SPL appearances, scoring four goals, sent-off once, up until 2 March 2024.
