Feyenoord consider Miyaichi return

Feyenoord technical director Martin van Geel will weigh up all options before deciding whether to sign Arsenal winger Ryo Miyaichi on another loan deal.

The 18-year-old Japanese was bought by the Gunners in January and immediately loaned out to the Eredivisie side, where he quickly became a fans' favourite.

Reports have suggested Miyaichi could head back to Feyenoord next season for another loan spell, but despite making a huge impression there, Van Geel insists such a 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."
