Feyenoord have not decided if they will sign Arsenal winger Ryo Miyaichi on another season long loan deal.

The 18-year-old was bought by the Gunners manager Arsene Wenger in January but was immediately sent to Holland because of work permit issues.

The Japan U19 international made an immediate impact and became a fans’ favourite with his impressive displays.

At present it is unclear if Wenger will allow the teenager to go back to Feyenoord and may want to keep Miyaichi in London if the visa problems can be fixed.

But despite making a huge impression there, Feyenoord technical director Martin van Geel insists such a loan deal is not as clear-cut as people may think.

“Ryo has definitely been of great value to us,” he told Voetbal International.

“The lad has done very well with us, but we also have to look at our own players.

“In Sekou Cisse and Jerson Cabral we have two players able to work just as well as Ryo in the same position. We cannot turn a blind eye to that.

“Therefore we will go through everything and then make a considered decision whether it is wise to bring in Ryo.”
