Weird Wellington goings on as buy back-sell on deal reported


Last summer Arsenal finally said goodbye to Wellington Silva after the Brazilian, signed in 2010, was sold to Fluminense.

The attacker had spent most of his time as a Gunner in Spain turning out for Levante, Alcoyano, Ponferridina, Murcia and Almeria in a string of underwhelming loan moves.

He then spent a season at Bolton Wanderers where he showed some nice skills at times, before being sold on to the Brazilian side.

However, despite doing well at Fluminense with 9 goals last season and despite their desire to keep him, because he went there on a free transfer, Arsenal have exercised their right to buy back his rights before selling him on.

GloboEsporte say that we’ll buy him back from Brazil for a fixed price as agreed when we sold him (€5m), before moving him on to French side Bordeaux.

All in all, a bit of a weird one, perhaps one our new contract supremo will have had to work on, because it all sounds a bit complicated.

Still, it gives us one more chance to give Wellington the boot.
