Eduardo da Silva has been cleared to play for Arsenal after a successful appeal to the Home Office for a work permit.

The Gunners signed the Brazil-born Croatia striker from Dinamo Zagreb following the sale of captain Thierry Henry.

With the formalities of the deal - understood to be worth £8million - Eduardo is now free to continue his pre-season preparations with the Gunners, which continue at the Amsterdam Tournament against Lazio.
