Jesse Joronen (born 21 March 1993) is a Finnish footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Fulham. Joronen made his senior début for Finland in 2013.[1]

Club career[edit]

Born and raised in the small town of Simpele located near the Russian border, Joronen joined Fulham Academy in 2009.[2] In June 2010, Jorosen signed his first professional contract with the club, which will keep him until 2013.[3]

In May 2012, Joronen signed a two year extension with Fulham, that will keep him until 2014.[4] Six month later, on 25 October 2012, Joronen joined Maidenhead United on loan[5] and in February 2013, Joronen was loaned to Cambridge United.[6] Only a day later Joronen returned to Fulham after he refused to be named as a substitute for Cambridge.[7]

After a loan spell at Maidenhead United, Joronen then move back to Finland, where he joined Veikkausliiga side FC Lahti on loan until August.[8] After making eighteen appearance for the club, Joronen returned to his parent club in early August.[9]

At the start of the 2014-15 season, Joronen signed a two-year contract with the club that kept him until 2016.[10] He was then given his debut as the starting goalkeeper in Fulham's opening game in the Championship against Ipswich Town on 9 August 2014.[11] After making three more appearance for the club, Joronen soon lost his first team place to Marcus Bettinelli and new goalkeeper signing, Gábor Király.

Joronen joined Accrington Stanley on loan for one month on 17 October 2014,[12] but he returned early after dislocating his kneecap during a League Two match against Morecambe.[13] Then, it was announced that Joronen would be out for three to four month.[14]

International career[edit]

Having represented Finland's Finland U17, Finland U19[15] and Finland U21,[16] Joronen was called by the senior national team and made a debut for the Finland senior team in the 2013 King's Cup against Thailand on 24 January 2013.[1]
