On loan Arsenal star Wellington Silva has suffered a nasty hamstring injury while away with Bolton, and could be out for months, according to the BBC.
If the injury is severe enough then he may return to Arsenal for treatment, and whether he’ll head back to Bolton once he’s recovered remains to be seen.
Neil Lennon confirmed the bad news in a recent press conference, and Bolton then announced the blow on their official Twitter.

The 22-year-old has made nine appearances for Bolton so far, and was really starting to find his feet. His end product has been somewhat lacking, but he was slowly growing into an important part of Lennon’s side.

Whether he’s ever going to make the grade at Arsenal is certainly questionable, but he’s certainly a talented young winger. This injury obviously won’t help his development, but hopefully he can overcome it and get back on track in the new year. Bolton seems like a good fit for him, so a return there in 2016 would be excellent.
