BREAKING NEWS: Arsenal’s Ryo Miyaichi Granted Work Permit

By on August 9, 2011

Arsenal have successfully secured a work permit that allows Ryo Miyaichi to play for the club next season.

Miyaichi was granted an ‘exceptional talent’ work permit, after a hearing held at Wembley Stadium this afternoon. Arsenal manger Arsene Wenger attended the hearing, and the case was supported by a letter from the Japanese Football Association.

The 18-year-old spent a successful loan spell at Feyenoord last season and is known for his pace and trickery down the left flank. After hearing the news, Wenger said:

“We are absolutely delighted that Ryo has been granted a work permit. This is almost like a new signing for us, as we weren’t completely sure we would be given the authorisation. Ryo has worked extremely hard in pre-season and performed very well during the matches in Asia, Germany and Portugal.

Wenger continued: “Ryo has natural technical ability. He has good balance and phenomenal pace, and his passing and crossing is consistently of a high quality. He is a very exciting player. He had a successful time with Feyenoord in the Netherlands last season, who gave him the opportunity to play regularly, and we’re looking forward to his contribution this coming season with Arsenal.”

    gr8 news, but wenger should try as much as possible to keep either of Nasri or Fabrigas, if not he must look for a suitable replacement and a no nonsense defender.
