New Arsenal Signing Goes Straight Out On Loan

By on January 19, 2011

Ryo Miyaichi, the young Japanese attacker who joined Arsenal in the new year, has been sent on loan to Feyenoord in an informal agreement.

He was offered a contract by Arsenal at the end of August 2010, but officially agreed to join the club at the start of the new year, which was exciting news for Arsenal as he has been compared to former Manchester United winger/striker, Cristiano Ronaldo – in terms of ability. Wenger praised the 18 year-olds “raw ability” and “potential” which delighted him and attracted Arsenal to bring him to London.

He will now begin to fulfill his potential in Holland with Feyenoord as Arsenal director Richard Law said:

“We don’t believe in a co-operation by signing contracts and documents. It’s much more important to build up a good relationship. We have similar relationships with other players and already have a good relationship with Feyenoord.”

“If we can help each other out, then it is something we will look into. I see this as a shake of hands agreement.”

The move is apparently part of a wider strategy to strengthen links between the two clubs – who both have similar footballing philosophies, and Arsenal believe that the Dutch club will be a good place for youngsters like Miyaichi to learn their trade before returning to England. The Arsenal Director, Richard Law continued:

“Feyenoord must fully trust us when we say that he is a very good player. We feel they will use him in the right manner. We have not put any demands on them and it will be up to them where he will play and how much he does.”

Tell me what you think!

    From what I have seen of him he looks like he has a lot of potential and is very quick – 10.8 seconds for 100m apparently, but I’m not keen on all the ‘new Ronaldo’ e.t.c. type talk that always has to be thrown on the shoulders of young players, increasing pressure.

    Also your title is slightly misleading – He was refused a work permit so Arsenal had no choice but to send him out on loan (to a country where permit laws are less stringent) until one can be secured.
    Sending him to a club with a similar footballing philosophy makes sense, as I’m sure Wenger would have liked to have got Miyaichi settled into the Arsenal system as soon as possible.

    I’ve seen videos of this guy, very talented! Didnt he brake his leg at all? I currently work for LocateTV.com and as an Arsenal fan have made this feature which allows you to find whenever Arsenal are on TV http://www.locatetv.com/person/arsenal/351006

    It picks up a few reserve games that are shown, so you guys might find it useful.

    Looking forward to tonights game, slightly worried. Come on you gooners!

    This is guy is going places with Arsenal, I’ve seen videos of him playing in his native country and I must say, I’m proud to be a gunner. I just hope he will get enough experience to compete at highest level coz winning Champions League remains a tough assignment and don’t see it happening with the crop of players we have at the moment. Arshavin, Bendtner, Rosicky will never help Arsenal win titles. that’s why I asked Wenger to demand a lot from his players coz the agents demands a lot of money for these players and they don’t produce results which is very strange in todays football. Miyaichi, Wellington Silva, Eden Hazard, Nasri, Wilshere, Walcott will make us proud.

    I thank you
