LONDON (Kyodo) Arsenal striker Ryo Miyaichi is set to move to a Dutch first division club on loan after the Gunners failed in their bid to get a work permit for the young sensation.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger told reporters Friday that Miyaichi, who has been unable to obtain a work visa because he has no experience with the senior Japan national team, will be loaned out to “either Feyenoord or Excelsior.”

Wenger said he hoped Miyaichi would be able to get national team experience soon so he could bring the 18-year-old back to the Emirates.
