    Bordeaux have confirmed that they’ll be signing Wellingston Silva from Arsenal after the club exercised a buy-back clause in his contract.

    The Brazilian went to Fluminense on a free transfer last season, with a stipulation that the Gunners could purchase him back for a fixed price, believed to be around €3.5m.

    With the French side willing to pay around €5m for the attacker, Arsenal have done just that and the player should be confirmed as their player early next week.

    According to Bordeaux coach, Jocelyn Gourvennec, “Wellington Silva is expected to arrive this weekend and sign with us early next week after his medical visit.

    “It took a bit of time, but he should be with us .”

    Wellington was extremely highly rated by staff at Arsenal when he arrived at the club, but never seemed able to develop his talent during one of the many loan spells he was sent on.

    He’ll now have a chance to further his career in Ligue 1. Good luck to him.

    We made 1.5 million Euros on the deal.

    I know it seems pointless to post it but this has seemingly gone unnoticed by most.

    I suppose we can put another buy-back clause in the contract again in case he does well at Bordeaux. Or a sell-on clause.

    I'd like to think it was the other way and done like this as he really wanted the move. Apparently Fluminense didn't want to sell.

    Indeed we can. 1.5m Euros for doing nothing. Glad to see our management team finally switching on. Should have moved on a lot of of deadwood using similar methods. Sell slightly lower and insert clauses to benefit us in the future. Gets us instant cash frees up squad space and wages and means if the player actually does well we get some reward without any of the risk.
