At 22 years old, Silva will join the Championship club for the duration of the 2015/16 campaign, after the switch was confirmed late last night.

The highly rated 22-year-old had been tipped to stand out in the Gunners first team, but issues with a work permit upheld his development.

As a result of those issues Silva was sent out on loan on five different occasions, since joining the North London club back in 2011.

Following his absence from top-level English football, Arsene Wenger believes the best option is to send the youngster out to pick up regular minutes in the Championship.

And it hasn’t taken long for Wanderers boss, Neil Lennon, to express his admiration for the Brazilian youth international, after speaking following Tuesday evenings 1-0 loss,

Silva should have been playing tonight but we missed the registration time by about three minutes.

He would have made a big difference to the way we wanted to play, so he will definitely come into contention on Saturday.

We think he is a good player and will make us better.

Silva joins a whole host of Arsenal players experiencing spells away from the Emirates this season, and you can check out how they’re getting on right here.

The latest of which is Gedion Zelalam, who is expected to follow in the footsteps of Silva to Scottish club, Rangers.
