Arsenal youngster Ryo Miyaichi will join Bolton Wanderers on loan for the rest of the season, the two clubs have confirmed.

The 19-year-old Japanese winger signed for the Gunners in January of last year, and has made two senior appearances since his move to the Emirates Stadium.

Immediately after joining Arsenal, Ryo was sent out on loan to Eredivisie side Feyenoord where he contributed five assists during 12 games in Holland.

Arsene Wenger confirmed on Sunday that he was likely to let Ryo leave north London temporarily once again, but this time he would remain in England.

And Bolton have won the race for his signature - something that manager Owen Coyle is delighted about.

"He's a very talented young player, who is quick and exciting," he told the official Bolton website. "He had a great spell on loan at Feyenoord last season.

"He's a young player with tremendous promise and potential and hopefully at Bolton we can give him a platform on which he can display his qualities."

Arsenal face Bolton at the Reebok Stadium on Wednesday night, but Ryo will not be available to face his parent club.

Ryo follows in the footsteps of Jack Wilshere, who spent a fruitful spell with Bolton before his breakthrough into Wenger's senior side.
