Youngster Wellington Silva is set to re-join his boyhood club Fluminense, after sealing a move back to the Rio based club this summer transfer window. Wellington has already returned to his country home Rio de Janeiro having completing a move back after 6 years away.
Silva, 23, joined the Gunners in the summer of 2010, but had to go through couple of loan spells at La Liga clubs, including Alcayano, Levante, Ponferredina, Murcia and Almeria, following his Home Office decision not to grant him the required special talent visa upon putting pen to paper for Arsenal.
He never featured for Wenger’s first team; however, in the year 2014, he obtained a Spanish passport, making him eligible to play for Arsenal. Last season, he was on loan at Bolton Wanderers but he did not live up to expectation as the club got disappointingly relegated from the second tier of English football.
Last season, Bolton boss Neil Lennon criticized the Brazilian, lamenting that the Arsenal man was not playing well enough to earn a place in Lancashire team.
He’s current Arsenal contract was set to end in the summer of 2018, but it seems like a transfer to his club of original Fluminense is done and dusted.
