BREAKING NEWS: Arsenal’s Ryo Miyaichi Granted Work Permit
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.”
