Matt Macey’s long spell at Arsenal is over, with the goalkeeper having joined Hibernian on a permanent basis.
The 26-year-old leaves having made just two competitive appearances for the Arsenal first-team, both of which came in the 2017/18 campaign.
Macey, who remains the only English goalkeeper to play for Arsenal at Emirates Stadium, was particularly impressive against Red Star Belgrade but it has become increasingly apparent in recent years that he wasn’t going to succeed at Arsenal.
During his time at Arsenal Macey had loan spells at Accrington Stanley, Luton Town and Plymouth Argyle, but he struggled to make a sustained impact.
The shot-stopper was promoted to the first-team squad in 2019 and was an unused substitute on many occasions during his time at Arsenal, including for the FA Cup final last year.
Macey spent the majority of his time at Arsenal playing for the U23s, for whom he made 69 appearances in total, which is more than most other players.
Having been incredibly patient, Macey will now hope to establish himself at Hibernian, where he has initially signed a six-month contract.
