Emirates Stadium wide-man moves to the Reebok.
Bolton Wanderers have completed the loan signing of Ryo Miyaichi from Arsenal.
The 19-year-old Japanese youth international moves to the Reebok Stadium on a deal for the remainder of the season.
“He’s a very talented young player, who is quick and exciting,” manager Owen Coyle said. “He had a great spell on loan at Feyenoord last season.
“He’s a young player with tremendous promise and potential and hopefully at Bolton we can give him a platform on which he can display his qualities.”
Arsenal, and indeed Bolton, will hope that Ryo Miyaichi will have a similar impact to the likes of Jack Wilshere and Daniel Sturridge who used good effective loan spells at the Reebok Stadium to hone their game and mature as footballers to become crucial members of their respective ‘host’ clubs.
Japanese youngster Miyaichi had a successful stint in Holland with Feyenoord and has impressed during his brief cameo roles in the Arsenal first team and Owen Coyle will hope that the teenager can help add a more direct approach on the wings and help supply his front men with the ammunition the Trotters need in order to pull away from the drop zone.
Bolton sit just above the relegation zone after a run of decent recent form helped pull them clear but Coyle knows that the coming weeks will be crucial to his sides hopes of beating the drop. Having sold Gary Cahill to Chelsea the Reebok Stadium side brought in American Tim Ream to help beef up defensive options.
