Arsenal's Brazilian winger Wellington Silva has returned to Brazil to join Fluminense after failing to play a single game for the Premier League giants.
Having signed for the Gunners in 2010, Silva failed to get a work permit and spent time on loan in Spain with Levante, Alcoyano, Ponferradina, Murcia and Almeria.
It was not until the 2015-16 season that he finally received his work permit, but was subsequently sent out on loan to Bolton Wanderers, where he made 22 appearances and scored two goals.

Despite the chance to finally turn out for Arsene Wenger's team, the 23-year-old made the decision to call time in London and to return to Fluminense.
"I am very happy. I want to thank Fluminense for this opportunity after so long to go back, I'm eager to start. I am very anxious, really it is like the first time," he said.
"[My] Desire to return has always existed. When I learned that it was possible I was nervous for 10 days.
"I am very happy and I have no words to thank. Now I have to train and get on to the field as quickly as possible."
