Wellington Silva's transfer from Fluminense to Bordeaux has fallen through after the Brazilian forward failed a medical.

The collapse sees the 24-year-old denied a second chance at European football after a disappointing six-year spell at Arsenal, during which he failed to make a single appearance for the Premier League club.

He had agreed a deal to join the Ligue 1 club subject to a medical, but Bordeaux confirmed via Twitter they had opted against finalising the move.

Silva has scored seven goals in domestic league and cup competitions for Fluminense this year.
