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.
