Joel Campbell heading for Real Betis on loan


Joel Campbell, the loan man. Loany O’Toole. Bob Loan.

If there’s a loan move, he’s on it, and he’s about to embark on his sixth loan move since signing for the club in 2011.

So far he’s been to Real Betis, Lorient, Olympiacos, Villarreal, and Sporting Lisbon, and he’s heading back to Spain as we speak for another spell at the Seville based club.

He played 33 games for Los Verdiblancos in 2012/13, scoring two goals and making three assists.

He’s long since been considered surplus to requirements at Arsenal, but an earlier departure this summer wasn’t just down to us being rubbish at moving players on, but because of a knee injury he suffered on international duty this summer.

Official confirmation to follow.
