Arsenal wrap up services of highly-prized South American as contract signed!

Arsenal have extended the contract of Brazilian star Wellington Silva reports ESPN.

Silva has been on the books of the Gunners since joining from Fluminense in 2011, but his failure to get a work permit in England saw him shipped out to Spain.

He has spent the past five seasons on loan at Levante, Alcoyano, Ponferradina, Murcia and Almeria, impressing on a number of occasions.

And having been given a Spanish citizenship, he was granted his work permit in April 2015 clearing the way for him to finally play professional football in England.

And now the Gunners have secured his services until 2020. © 2017 Frontier Theme
