Japan’s Miyaichi gets permit to play for Arsenal

Arsenal winger Ryo Miyaichi was granted a British work permit on Tuesday despite a lack of international appearances for Japan and is set to make his debut for the Premier League club.

The 18-year-old Miyaichi was signed in January but spent the rest of last season on loan at Dutch club Feyenoord as he didn’t have official clearance to play for the London club.

Arsenal said Miyaichi was granted a work permit on the grounds of his "exceptional talent.”

"We are absolutely delighted that Ryo has been granted a work permit,” Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said.
