Ryo Miyaichi admits Arsenal teammate Jack Wilshere convinced him about joining Bolton Wanderers on-loan.

Miyaichi's move sees him follow in the footsteps of Wilshere after the midfielder spent six months with manager Owen Coyle in 2010.

"Jack Wilshere said I would become a better player by playing here," said Miyaichi, who watched Bolton hold Arsenal 0-0 at home on Wednesday before meeting his new team mates.

"I saw what Jack did here (on loan) two years ago. Of course, I want to be like him and play well for Bolton. My style is to dribble with the ball so I'm excited to come here."

Manager Coyle added: "He's a very talented young player, who is quick and exciting,' said Bolton manager Owen Coyle said. 'He had a great spell on loan at Feyenoord last season."
