Wenger eyes loan move for Miyaichi

Kyodo

Arsenal’s Ryo Miyaichi will be loaned out to a club in England if he moves this winter, Gunners manager Arsene Wenger said Sunday.

“It will have to be in England because he will lose the homegrown (status) if he leaves the country,” Wenger said of the highly rated 19-year-old.

“I will have a chat with him tomorrow and I have a little plan. (Alex) Oxlade-Chamberlain plays on the flanks now too, so if I can find an opportunity for him to play somewhere I will decide whether to do that tomorrow.”

The winter transfer window closes on Tuesday.

Miyaichi has been limited to just a couple of appearances in the League Cup this season.
