The Norfolk side had submitted a seven-day approach that was up on Monday, but the popular stopper agreed with Sudbury manager Chris Tracey that he would remain and play in the league game at Ilford on Wednesday evening.
Tracey was aware that his main goalkeeper was likely to move back to Norfolk and a club that is on his doorstep and where he played between August 2009 and January 2010.
It will certainly cut down his travelling, as for last Saturday’s FA Trophy game at Faversham Town, Gay left his King’s Lynn home at 10am to ensure that he arrived on time.
Gay has been an ever-present since signing from Needham Market in July 2011, making a total of sixty-three appearances, conceding seventy-eight goals and keeping twenty clean sheets.
Tracey paid tribute to Gay, saying: “Danny is a great goalkeeper and a very reliable one. He has never been late for training or a match despite living so far away. I can only compliment him and wish him all the best he will certainly be very welcome back at The MEL Group Stadium anytime.
“I was aware that he was likely to leave and to that end I have put wheels in motion to ensure that I have another first class keeper at the club before our next game in ten days` time.”
