Arsenal starlet Ryo Miyaichi will rejoin Feyenoord on loan next season, it has been claimed.

According to talkSPORT, the 18-year-old winger is closing in on a return to De Kuip, having initially enjoyed a fruitful temporary spell with the Eredivisie club during the second half of the last campaign.

Miyaichi scored three times in 12 appearances for the Rotterdam side after joining from Arsenal last January, while his performances led the Dutch press to bestow the Japanese youngster with the nickname 'Ryodinho'.

Arsene Wenger had previously confirmed that Miyaichi would return to Arsenal in the summer to take part in pre-season, with the hope of playing some part with the senior squad when the Barclays Premier League kicks off agains.


"I have only [heard] positive reports about him. He will be with us in pre-season,'' explained the Arsenal boss. "I think he is good enough, but if he is ready enough to have a place in our team, we will ask for a work permit and try to get him in.

"What I like about Ryo is that he has good timing with his runs and understands when to go and where to go. That is something very important. He knows how to use his pace and he is an intelligent player."

However, Wenger is reportedly happy for the teenager to further his development in Holland, while issues surrounding his work permit still delay a full-time link-up with Arsenal.
