Arsenal winger Ryo Miyaichi is expected to leave the club on loan until the end of the season.

The Japanese youngster has made just two appearances for The Gunners this season, both in the Carling Cup.

Manager Arsene Wenger is expecting big things of the 19-year-old, and wants to further his development by loaning him out to a Premier League rival.

"I will have a chat with him tomorrow and I have a little plan," Wenger said. "If I can find an opportunity for Miyaichi to play somewhere I will decide whether to do that tomorrow.'

"It will have to be in England because he will lose the homegrown status if he leaves the country."

The likes of Bolton Wanderers and Fulham are both being linked with a move for Miyaichi, who spent last season on loan at Feyenoord.

Wenger will hope that a temporary loan spell will assist in Miyaichi's development, with previous loan deals involving Jack Wilshere and Wojciech Szczesny proving a great success.

Emmanuel Frimpong has already been loaned out to Wolverhampton Wanderers, with Miyachi set to become the latest youngster to move on.

Of those linked with the starlet, Wenger would see Bolton was a worthwhile destination after Wilshere flourished under Owen Coyle.
