Wellington Silva looks to be on his way back to Brazil to rejoin his former club Fluminense.
In this most modern of worlds, the 23 year old posted a picture of his training kit on Snapchat with the caption ‘A good son always returns home’.
Wellington joined Arsenal in 2010 and was extremely highly rated on arrival. However, he’s had a succession of loan spells away from the club, none of which have convinced Arsene Wenger that he’s ready for first team action.
His list of clubs in Spain includes Levante (where he developed a pizza problem), Alcoyano, Ponferradina, Murcia and Almeria. He spent last season on loan at Bolton where he had some good moments but struggled to make a real impact as the Trotters were relegated from the Championship.
It now looks as if he’ll go home to his formative club, and hopefully for him his career might start on an upwards trajectory.
The Brazilian has a contract until 2018 so there may be a fee involved but it’s likely to be nominal at best.
