Bolton have signed Arsenal midfielder Ryo Miyaichi on loan for the rest of the season.

“He’s a very talented young player who is is quick and exciting,” Bolton manager Owen Coyle told the club’s official website  .

“He’s a young player with tremendous promise and potential, and hopefully at Bolton we can give him a platform on which he can display his qualities.”

Miyaichi had a successful trial with the Gunners in the summer of 2010 before making a permanent move to Emirates Stadium in January.

He was immediately loaned to Feyenoord, where he scored three goals in 12 appearances, in order to qualify for a work permit, which he was granted in August.

Miyaichi has made two substitute appearances for Arsenal this season, including an outing in the 2-1 Carling Cup win over Bolton in October.

Coyle has enjoyed previous success in the loan market, being boosted by the acquisitions of Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere and Chelsea’s Daniel Sturridge in the past two years.

Miyaichi could make his Trotters debut at Norwich on Saturday.
