Another Spanish loan spell for Silva

Last Updated: Sat, 12 Jul 2014 16:45

Arsenal are likely to send out highly-rated youngster Wellington Silva to Spanish side Almeria on a season-long loan.

The Brazilian has already enjoyed temporary spells in Spain with Levante, Alcoyano, Ponferradina and Murcia since joining the Gunners from Fluminense in 2010, due to problems securing with his work permit.

However, the Premier League outfit are confident he will finally receive clearance to move to north London next year after spending one more campaign away from the Emirates Stadium.

By the end of that time, he will be eligible for Spanish citizenship which will open the door for Silva to, at long last, showcase his talents back at his parent club in the 2015/2016 season.

The player's agent, Alex Soares told Sky Sports: "A deal has been agreed between Arsenal and Almeria for Wellington Silva to go on loan for the season.

"He had the choice to go to a number of teams in Spain, but Silva has decided to join Almeria.

"He will fly to Spain next week to complete the paperwork to join Almeria for next season.

"We are hopeful that, after this loan at Almeria, Silva will be able to return to play for Arsenal and they will monitor his progress in Spain next season."
