Ryo Miyaichi leaves Arsenal: Japanese winger signs for FC Twente on season-long loan

The 21-year-old has failed to impress at Arsenal

Ryo Miyaichi has left Arsenal to join FC Twente on a season-long loan deal, according to reports.

The Japanese winger signed for the Gunners back in 2011, but has only ever made one Premier League appearance for the club after being shipped out on three previous loan spells.

The 21-year-old moves back to the Netherlands, where he enjoyed an impressive loan spell with Feyenoord in 2011.

Miyachi then went on loan to Bolton Wanderers for the second half of the following season and then moved to Wigan last season, but suffered an ankle injury early into his time at the DW Stadium and only made four league appeances.


Arsene Wenger said yesterday that the Gunners remain "very active" in the transfer market ahead of tonight's deadline.
