Chris Kiwomya joined Arsenal for £1.25million in January 1995 but failed to nail down a regular first-team place during his three-year stint at the Club.
He made his name at Ipswich, where he notched up over 200 appearances over seven years as a professional at the club where he began his career as a trainee.
In 1995 he became one of George Graham's last signings as Arsenal manager, joining the Club just seven weeks before the Scot's departure.
The striker scored three goals in 17 appearances for the Gunners but wasn't selected by new manager Bruce Rioch during the 1995/96 season and found himself on the transfer list that January.
Kiwomya remained an Arsenal player but spent the six months on loan at Le Havre and then on loan with Malaysian side Selangor during the 1997/98 season for half a season. He finally left Arsenal for Queen's Park Rangers in May 1998.
He made over 100 appearances for the Rs before ending his playing career at AaB Aalborg. In July 2008 Kiwomya was appointed as Reserve Team Development Coach at Ipswich Town.
