Pedro Botelho has left Arsenal after a distinguished four-year career which saw him represent the club on precisely zero occasions.
The Brazilian left-back, who signed for the Gunners in January 2008, has returned to his homeland signing permanently for second tier side Atletico Paranaense.
After stints with Salamanca, Celta Vigo, Cartagena, Rayo Vallecano and Levante it looks as though Arsene Wenger has given up on trying to secure the youngster a work permit.
Speaking about his move, Botelho told his new club: “It was time to return to Brazilian football. I am still very young and I want to know more about Brazilian football, where I played little. It will be a great opportunity to play for a club like Atletico Paranaense.”
Arsenal are set to receive a nominal fee. Supporters are urged to stay calm in light of this potentially pivotal bit of summer business.
