Bolton Sign Arsenal's Wellington Silva on Loan

For the season, no less.

With Tim Ream's move to Fulham finally completed, Bolton Wanderers are finally able to announce signings of their own, and they kicked things off by announcing the capture of Arsenal winger, Wellington Silva, on a season-long loan.

The pacey Brazilian U21 international, has a lot of experience for his young age of 22, having plyed his trade in Spain for the last five seasons. He's already played 122 games in his career, notching ten goals, which included stints at Fluminense, Levante, Alcoyano, Ponferradina, Murica and Almeria. That's not even counting his appearances in the Arsenal youth teams.

The skilful wideman, who can also play off the striker, cost Arsenal £3.5m when they acquired his signature back in 2011. So lots of potential indeed.

Silva has taken the #22 shirt, vacated by Eidur Gudjohnsen, for the duration of his time at The Macron Stadium and could could make his debut against Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

Lets hope he does.
