Confirmed: Joel Campbell joins Betis on loan … again


Real Betis have signed Joel Campbell on a season-long loan for the second time.

The Costa Rica international is currently recovering from a knee ligament injury suffered at the Gold Cup earlier in the summer but that hasn’t put the Seville-based La Liga side from taking a chance on him.

Campbell, who is under contract at the Emirates until 2019, spent the 2012/13 season on loan at theĀ Estadio Benito Villamarin scoring twice in 33 appearances.

This is the sixth time that the 25-year-old has been loaned out by Arsenal since he signed from homeland side Saprissa. He’s also undertaken stints with Lorient, Olympiacos, Villarreal and Sporting Lisbon.

There’s no option for Betis to buy at the end of this arrangement.

Best of luck to Joel.
