Iliev agrees to join Jagiellonia Bialystok on loan

Iliev

Deyan Iliev has agreed to join Polish top division side Jagiellonia Bialystok on loan until the end of the season.

The goalkeeper, who has just returned from a loan spell in Slovakia with Super Liga side SKF Sered, made 17 appearances for our under-23s last season, keeping five clean sheets in Premier League 2 and captaining the side against Brighton & Hove Albion at Emirates Stadium.
 
Iliev, who has represented North Macedonia at every youth level, has been with us for eight seasons now. He joined the club in 2012 from FK Belasica and was included in the first team squad for our home victory over Norwich City in the Carabao Cup in October 2017.
 
Deyan's fine performances were rewarded with a new contract, which was signed in July.
 
Everyone at Arsenal wishes Deyan all the best for his time in the Polish Ekstraklasa with Jagiellonia Bialystok.
 
The loan is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.

Interview

'I am the biggest fanboy of Conor McGregor!'

When Conor McGregor named Kieran Tierney as his favourite footballer at a press conference in Russia in October, it was just another example of the pair's rapport.

While on the face of it an unlikely sporting friendship, UFC fighter McGregor formed a bond with Tierney while our left-back was playing for former club Celtic.

Tierney admits that he's a massive fan of the Irish mixed martial artist – and is sure to be tuning in when he makes his return at UFC246 on Saturday.

"I met him in Belfast at a UFC event and that's what started it off," Tierney told Arsenal Player.

"I am the biggest fanboy of Conor McGregor ever! Honestly, the documentaries I've watched... I've watched every video on YouTube, twice!

"For me to have a relationship with him [is great].

"I messaged him back and forth on Instagram, and sent him over a shirt that he wore and put on Instagram. To see that... I didn't get any sleep that night after I saw it!

"He supports me as well, so I'm delighted to just be friends with him."
