Shrewsbury Town sign Arsenal goalkeeper Deyan

League One club Shrewsbury Town has completed the signing of Arsenal goalkeeper Deyan Iliev on loan until the end of January 2021. 

Iliev recently returned to Arsenal after his loan spell with Polish top division side Jagiellonia Bialystok came to an end. The 25-year-old signed a new deal last summer before he was sent out on loan in Slovakia with Super Liga side SKF Sered.

"Deyan Iliev has joined League One side Shrewsbury Town until the end of January 2021," a statement from the club read. 

Shrewsbury head coach Sam Ricketts was delighted to secure the services of Deyan and is looking forward to working with the Macedonian. 

"Deyan has been at Arsenal for a number of years. He’s also made his way up the age groups with Macedonia as well - he’s got good pedigree."

"He’s been out on loan in Poland and Slovakia so he is someone we are delighted to get. He brings more competition for the goalkeeping spaces. With Matty getting injured, it left us light. We were keen to get another goalkeeper in and we are looking forward to working with him and working together."
