Iliev joins Polish side on loan


Having just been recalled from his season long loan spell at Slovakian side SKF Sered, Dejan Iliev has gone out on loan again.

This time the 24 year old has joined Polish side Jagiellonia Bialystok – a team which sounds like a former Everton defender has put on a hippy music festival.

They’re currently 9th in the Ekstraklasa, and the 24 year old will be hoping to add to the 18 appearances he made in the Fortuna Liga.

Best of luck to him there.

Any explanation why the change was made? If he was playing seems odd


the ekstraklasa is a bit better? I think


A tiny bit 😉

It’s certainly better than the normalnaklasa.

Jagiellonia is a good club, usually aiming for the top in our league. Sered had poor defence, thus Dejan could not show his best there.

Based on what I’ve seen in Jagiellonia’s performances in 2019 (Ekstraklasa has got a lengthy winter break currently) Illiev should be able to show what he’s made of.


I hope they also need him, is their first choice keeper injured? Cause with 18 games for the Slovakians, it seems he was pretty much their regular starting keeper. Good luck there, I hope he gets a lot of starts.

Nate from NH

they have recent history developing mid to top tier keeper talent. Bartlomiej Dragowski I believe.

Looks like he ain’t that good. Almost 25 years old and the best he can manage is to shuffle between average teams in the Slovakian and Polish leagues. Disappointing, as many had high hopes for him when he joined as a promising 17 year-old in 2012. Good luck to him, hope he can go on to have a decent professional career outside of the big 5 European leagues


Hopefully he can go and polish his skills…

I’ll see myself out


My home country attracting Arsenal players 😉
First Eduardo da Silva couple of years ago to Legia Warszawa (Club where Fabiański and Szczesny grew up) and now Jagiellonia. Don’t know if that’s the right direction.


Polish direction can’t be right for any Arsenal player 😉


Don’t know much about him but still i wish him good luck.
