Jay-Roy Jornell Grot (born 13 March 1998) is a Dutch professional footballer who plays as a striker or right winger for Eredivisie club Vitesse, on loan from Leeds United. He also plays for Netherlands U21's.

Grot is of Surinamese descent, however to date he has only represented the Netherlands internationally at several age groups up to U21 level.



Grot played in Vitesse 1892's youth and then ESA Rijkerswoerd and at ten he was scouted by NEC and joined their academy. After 7 years in the academy Grot joined the NEC first team during the winter period of the 2014–15 season. In the summer of 2015, Grot signed a 3-year professional deal at the club.

He made his Eredivisie debut for NEC on 12 August 2015 in a 1–0 victory against Excelsior. On 26 November 2016, Grot scored his first goals for NEC, scoring a brace in the home 3–2 victory against FC Twente.[2]

After scoring 6 goals for NEC in 24 appearances during the 2016–17 season, his goals couldn't help NEC escape relegation from the Eredivisie, including scoring against FC Emmen in the first relegation playoff before losing to NAC Breda.[3]

In June 2017, Grot flew in to Florence for talks with Serie A side Fiorentina, however the move fell through when the clubs couldn't agree on a fee.[4]

On 22 August 2017, it was announced that Grot was flying to Leeds for a medical and to discuss personal terms with Leeds United, after a bid had been accepted.[5][6]

Leeds United

On 24 August 2017, Grot signed a four-year deal with EFL Championship side Leeds United for an undisclosed fee. He was assigned the number 11 shirt.[7] On 26 August, Grot made his debut for Leeds in a 2–0 victory against Nottingham Forest.[8] On 19 September, Grot made his first start for the club in a League Cup tie against Premier League side Burnley in Leeds' penalty shootout victory following a 2–2 draw.[9] On 17 December 2017, Grot was jeered by Leeds fans after coming on as a substitute in a 1–0 win against Norwich City, with the then head coach Thomas Christiansen defending the player who had still not scored for the club.[10]

He scored his first goal for the club in a defeat against Sheffield Wednesday on 17 March 2018.[11] On 10 April 2018, Grot made his first league start in the EFL Championship game against Preston North End (with all his league appearances prior coming as a substitute).[12]

After the end of the season, Grot was widely praised after he carried out an honest and open interview with Voetbal International in July 2018 talking about his 'difficult' first season in English football and living away from home.[13] [14]

VVV-Venlo (loan)

On 3 July 2018, Grot joined Eredivisie side VVV-Venlo on loan until 31 May 2019, in order to gain first team experience.[15]

He made his debut for Venlo on 11 August 2018, in a 1–0 win against Willem II.[16] His first goal for the club came on 22 September 2018 in a 3–0 win against NAC Breda. He followed this up with a goal against ADO Den Haag in a 2–0 win on 21 October 2018.[17] His performances in the first half of the season at VVV-Venlo, helped earn him a call up to the Netherlands U21's.[18]

In total, he made 33 appearances, playing in the majority of the 33 games as a Left Winger and scoring 6 goals and 3 assists for VVV-Venlo in Eredivisie, with Grot praised for his performances especially after scoring 3 goals in the final 5 games of the season.[19]

Vitesse (loan)

On 28 June 2019, Grot joined to Vitesse on loan until 30 June 2020.[20] He made his debut on the 3 August 2019, in the 2-2 draw against Ajax, before Grot scored his first goal for the club in his 2nd game in a 0-2 win against Willem II on 10 August.[21]

He was included in Netherlands U17's squad for the European Championships in 2015 and Netherlands U19 European Championship squad during the summer of 2017, with Grot scoring against Germany U19's in their group match on 3 July in a 4–1 victory,[22] helping the Netherlands U19's reach the semi finals of the tournament.[6]

He made his debut for Netherlands U21 in November 2018, playing against Germany U21[23]
