Fluminense’s president has told Fox Sports in (quotes via Terra), that will be sold back to before a to Bordeaux.

Speaking yesterday, Abad, explained the situation surrounding the winger:

“When we brought him in last year, there was a clause that allowed Arsenal to buy him back for a fixed amount. There is nothing we can do. Another club (Bordeaux, France) made a proposal that beats that value and Arsenal already said they will exercise this clause. So he should leave.”

The buyback clause allows the to re-sign the Brazilian for £3.5million (€4million) and then sell on the 24 year old for a profit. It was reported by Globo Esporte that Bordeaux had made a move for the player, and it seems Arsenal have been given guarantees by the French club they will bid more than the £3.5million that will need to pay Fluminense.

Wellington Silva signed for Arsenal from Fluminense all the way back in 2011. He did not make a senior appearance for the club and he spent most of his time out on loan with spells at , Alcoyano, Ponferradina, Real Murcia and Almeria. He returned permanently to Brazil last July but will now be making the move to France instead.
