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

The Japan youth international, 19, joined Arsenal in January 2011 and spent the second half of last season on loan at Feyenoord.

Miyaichi is not eligible to face his parent club on Wednesday.

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

"He had a great spell on loan at Feyenoord last season.

January 2009 - Jack Wilshere (Arsenal)

January 2010 - Vladimir Weiss (Manchester City)

Jan 2010 - Daniel Sturridge (Chelsea)

July 2011 - Dedryck Boyata (Manchester City)

August 2011 - Gael Kakuta (Chelsea)

January 2012 - Ryo Miyaichi (Arsenal).

"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.

  • Bristol Academy extends reach overseas with first foreign students

    With the doors to its brand new £1million training centre officially open, one of the UK's leading apprentice training providers, Bristol based S&B Automotive Academy, is showcasing its world-class facilities by launching a series of foreign student exchanges for the first time in its 41-year history. To get a flavour of what life is like as an apprentice in the UK, the Academy hosted 16 apprentice engineers and bus drivers from the G9 Automotive College in Hamburg, Germany, as part of a Europe-wide vocational training initiative called the ‘Leonardo Programme’ with support from the European Social Fund. In a reciprocal arrangement, S&B will be sending nine apprentices to Germany during February 2012 so that they can get an appreciation of life in the automotive industry on the Continent. A further three German exchange groups are being planned for next year. Designed to assist the development of vocational skills and training across Europe, including work placements for trainees, the Leonardo Programme has a budget of €1.75bn, which is helping to encourage UK organisations to work with their counterparts abroad. In what is expected to be another challenging year for employers in the UK automotive sector, S&B’s Chief Executive, Jon Winter, claims that the exchange initiative will bring many benefits to the Academy and its apprentices: “In a world of global automotive brands, it’s important for our learners to understand the international context of the industry they have chosen to make their career. This new exchange programme will enable apprentices and Academy staff alike to achieve a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities within the automotive arena in Europe. With the Academy’s influence also extending to the USA and Asia, there’s every possibility that this initiative could move further afield in the future.” Continued Winter: “The need for skilled technicians across the world is on the increase and we actively encourage our apprentices to look at broader horizons during their training. Many of them have already learned the phrase ‘Vorsprung durch Gelehrtheit’, quite simply, ‘Advancement through learning.” In the 2010/11 academic year, S&B doubled the number of successful Apprenticeships over the previous year with some 350 apprentices graduating from the Academy. At the same time, achievement levels reached an all-time high with an overall success rate of 85%. For those learners on the Advanced Apprenticeship three-year programme, success rates were even higher, at over 98%.
