Deyan Iliev


Born: February 25th 1995

Position: Goalkeeper

International: North Macedonia U21 (called up at senior level)

Loan spells: Sered, Jagiellonia Bialystok.

The oldest player in the youth setup at the age of 25, Iliev has been at Arsenal since 2012.

The goalkeeper has been named on the bench for the first-team on several occasions, including for the Europa League final against Chelsea in 2019.

Last season he went on loan for the first time, featuring for Slovakian side Sered before heading to Poland with Jagiellonia Bialystok, but he wasn’t overly impressive for either club.

Iliev previously spent two years out injured before bouncing back to feature for Arsenal U23s.



  1. Not quite sure why he was given a new contract recently, doesn’t seem to have done anything to merit this ‘reward’.
