Ryo Miyaichi has vowed to follow in the footsteps of Jack Wilshere at Bolton after being sent out on loan by Arsenal until the end of the season. The Japanese starlet arrived at the Reebok Stadium on transfer deadline day in order to continue his acclimatisation to the English game. Miyaichi had a successful spell with Feyenoord last season and returned to make two Carling Cup appearances for Arsenal. But now the 19-year-old hopes he can follow in the footsteps of England midfielder Jack Wilshere, who enjoying a successful spell at the Reebok before returning to cement his place in the Arsenal side. He told Bolton's official club website: "(Arsenal manager) Arsene Wenger wished me luck and told me to enjoy myself when I get the chance to play. "Jack Wilshere said I would become a better player by playing here," added Miyaichi, who watched Bolton hold Arsenal 0-0 at home on Wednesday before meeting his new team-mates. "I saw what Jack did here (on loan) two years ago. Of course, I want to be like him and play well for Bolton. My style is to dribble with the ball so I'm excited to come here."

Talented

Meanwhile, Trotters boss Own Coyle feels the midfielder will help the club in their fight against the drop. "He's a very talented young player, who is quick and exciting," he said. "He had a great spell on loan at Feyenoord last season." Miyaichi will become the third Japanese player to wear Bolton's colours after Akinori Nishizawa and Hidetoshi Nakata. "I think it will be different (from London)," said Miyaichi. "My first impressions are that it is a bit colder in Bolton."
