Ryo Miyaichi which ply his trade in the German second division next season after signing a permanent deal with St Pauli.
The Hamburg outfit – dubbed the world’s most left wing club – have snapped up the Japanese winger on a free deal after his Arsenal contract came to an end.
Miyaichi signed for the Gunners four years ago but never came close to nailing down a first team place. After a promising loan spell at Feyernoord, embarked on because he couldn’t get a permit to work in the UK, he was sent to gain experience at Bolton and Wigan. Both spells were wrecked by injuries that continued to blight him on his return to London.
The 22-year-old spent last season at FC Twente making six appearances in the Eredivisie.
His time at Arsenal may not have been the happiest, but he’ll always have the memories of the pre-season tour of Japan in 2013 where he was treated like a rock star and scored a penalty against Nagoya Grampus.
And we’ll always have this…
Arsenal have also confirmed that defender Semi Ajayi has signed for Cardiff after impressing on loan with the club in the final weeks of the 2014/15 season.
Good luck to both lads.
