Arsenal Winger Wellington Silva Joins Bolton On Loan
Arsenal winger Wellington Silva has joined Bolton on a season-long loan.
The Brazil U21 international moves to the Championship side after previous loan spells in Spain with Almeria, Real Murcia, Levante, Alcoyano and SD Ponferradina.
Silva joined Arsenal from Fluminense in January 2010 and previously played alongside Barcelona star Neymar and Liverpool’s Philippe Countinho for Brazil during the U17s World Cup.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is tipping the 22-year-old to make a big impression for Neil Lennon’s side.
“He’s a creative, tricky, quick player,” Wenger told Arsenal.com. “He’s absolutely stunning to watch and I believe Bolton will be surprised by his quality.
“I believe he will do extremely well because he has gained a lot of experience in Spain, he has come back to England and I am confident he will have a big impact in the Championship.”
