Arsenal goalkeeper Ovie Ejeheri has shared an emotional message after his loan spell with SJK Seinajoki has come to an end.
SJK Seinajoki are a Finnish football club operating in the highest tier of the country’s league system. 20-year-old Arsenal keeper Ovie Ejeheri played his final match with his loan club on the weekend where he kept a clean sheet as his side beat FC Honka by a goal to nil.
After the game, Ejeheri shared a message via Instagram with the SJK fans: “So grateful to God to have spent the last six months in Seinäjoki. Met so many people I won’t forget for the rest of my life, and shared great memories with.”
“Looking back, one of the best decisions in my life, to come to Finland. Thank you to everyone who made it amazing!”
Ejeheri went on loan to Chelmsford at the beginning of the 2022/23 campaign where he kept 12 clean sheets in 25 appearances. The Arsenal loanee impressed in the short time he was at the club and even earned a reputation as a bit of a penalty-save specialist, after keeping out two spot-kicks in two games.
The 20-year-old then went from National League South to the Finnish first tier as he wanted to test his ability even more during the second half of the 2022/23 season.
Things went just as well for the keeper at SJK, as he kept nine clean sheets in 18 competitive appearances in Finland. The Arsenal youngster left his second loan club on top of the league with two games in hand over second place.
Throughout last season Ovie Ejeheri kept 21 clean sheets in 43 appearances which is a really impressive record for the 20-year-old shot stopper. He’s set to attract a lot of interest this summer with Arsenal set to loan out the keeper again ahead of next season.
