Gunners striker Da Silva granted work permit

Eduardo da Silva has been cleared to play for Arsenal after a successful appeal to the Home Office for a work permit. The Gunners signed the Brazil-born Croatia striker from Dinamo Zagreb following the sale of captain Thierry Henry. The 24-year-old moved to Europe at the age of 15, and he took Croatian nationality in 2002. However, because he had not met the criteria of 75% of international appearances over the past two years, his application for a work permit went to an appeal. With the formalities of the deal - understood to be worth £8million - Eduardo is now free to continue his pre-season preparations with the Gunners, which continue at the Amsterdam Tournament against Lazio tonight. Manager Arsene Wenger had been 'optimistic' of a successful appeal. 'In our first attempt they strictly applied the rule,' he said at the weekend, when Arsenal won the Emirates Cup. 'Eduardo has played 50% of national team games for Croatia. I consider it a fantastic achievement at the age of 24 - and he played every single game in the last year.'
