Under Premier League rules, Miyaichi will not be eligible to

play for Bolton against Arsenal in Wednesday night’s game at the

Reebok Stadium.

Wanderers boss Owen Coyle told the club’s website: “He’s a very

talented young player, who is quick and exciting.

“He had a great spell on loan at Feyenoord last season.

“He’s a young player with tremendous promise and potential and

hopefully at Bolton we can give him a platform on which he can

display his qualities.”

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger always wanted Miyaichi to stay in

the Premier League to continue his acclimatisation.

Speaking after Sunday’s FA Cup win over Aston Villa, Wenger

said: “[Alex] Oxlade-Chamberlain plays on the flanks now too, so if

I can find an opportunity for him to play somewhere I will decide

whether to do that.

“It will have to be in England because he will lose the

homegrown [status] if he leaves the country.”

England midfielder Jack Wilshere, currently recovering from an

ankle problem, enjoyed a succesful loan spell at Bolton before

returning to cement his place in the Arsenal side.
