Ozil - The changes Arteta has made already

It may be early days in the Mikel Arteta era, but Mesut Ozil likes what he sees from our new head coach.

The pair used to be team-mates, but the World Cup winner feels our head coach is perfectly suited to his new role.

"He can show us everything he has learnt his long career so he knows exactly what we need to do, and so we know what we need to do as well," Ozil said. "He just pushes us far to get there so we can play successfully.
 
"He knows what to say to us, how to give us a positive attitude and how to make us be successful. I can see he is really hungry, but at the same time he is very down to earth and that is a very good characteristic to make us be a successful team.

"It is basically getting us back to the old Arsenal virtues. Fighting and having possession, being in control of the game, having the ball all the time. These are the things that he is working on with us and you can see it – everyone is smiling, laughing, enjoying their time at the moment and this has made us be successful now.
 
"I think he is the right man at this club."

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.
