Arsène Wenger says Wellington Silva is “absolutely stunning to watch” after the Brazilian completed a loan move to Bolton Wanderers.

The 22-year-old has previously had temporary spells in Spain with Almeria, Real Murcia, Levante, Alcoyano and SD Ponferradina.

Now Wellington will have the chance to prove himself in the Championship with Neil Lennon’s side, and Wenger is backing him to shine.

“He’s a creative, tricky, quick player,” the manager told “He’s absolutely stunning to watch and I believe Bolton will be surprised by his quality.

“I believe he will do extremely well because he has gained a lot of experience in Spain, he has come back to England and I am confident he will have a big impact in the Championship.”
