Three more days (including today) left in the January transfer window and the only new name in the Bolton Wanderers dressing room is that of Tim Ream. Owen Coyle isn't ready to let it lie that way though as rumor after rumor about who will be the next man in a White shirt will be. The rumor du jour is that Coyle will once again play the Premier League Loan game by bringing in young Arsenal winger Ryo Miyaichi for the rest of the season.

"Who?" You may be asking yourself. Hit the jump to find out more.

Miyaichi has yet to make a Premier League appearance since transferring to Arsenal almost a year ago to the day. Shortly after signing for the Gunners, he was sent on loan to Feyenoord in the Dutch Eredivisie where he made 12 appearances, scoring three times and creating five assists in that period. So far this season, he's played 8 times for the Arsenal reserves, a total of 579 minutes, and has scored once and assisted twice.

He is largely unproven in England after completing a free transfer from Chukyo high school to Arsenal. He has a lot of pace about him and has been likened to Ronaldinho as well as having been called the Japanese Messi. We may be more inclined to call him the Japanese Chung-Yong Lee. Pace down the wings and what looks like an excellent touch on the ball could see him be a real sensation at Bolton.
