Deyan Iliev’s curious Arsenal career continues with news that the Macedonian is returning on loan to SKF Sered; the Slovak side who signed him for the 2019/20 campaign.
The 26-year-old – yep, he’s no spring chicken – joined the Gunners in 2012 and is yet to make a competitive appearance for the Gunners’ first team.
If Iliev stays at Sered for the whole season he will reach the end of his Arsenal contract. Likely that he will leave permanently next summer.

In addition to a season in the Slovak Super League, he’s also spent time with Polish side Jagiellonia and Shrewsbury Town.
According to our resident youth expert, Jeorge Bird, Iliev’s contract, which he last signed in July 2018, runs out next summer so it’s very likely he’ll leave the club after a decade.
