Joel Campbell could return as Betis consider cutting loan deal short


Joel Campbell could return to Arsenal this month as Real Betis consider cutting his loan deal short.

The Costa Rican is in his second spell with the La Liga side, having enjoyed a successful season there in 2012-13. However, this time around things have not gone so well.

The 25 year old has made just four appearances and one start in a season that has been dogged by knee and ankle injuries. He has one goal to his name, coming in a 6-3 defeat by Valencia, but the Spanish side are now looking at the possibility of sending him back to London.

Campbell did enjoy some success with Arsenal after a series of loan spells, but ultimately never quite made the grade.

He spent last season on Portugal with Sporting Lisbon, and it’s clear he’s not a player who is in the plans of Arsene Wenger. Quite what happens if he does return is anybody’s guess, but if we had to put money on it we’d go with a loan deal somewhere on loan for the rest of the season on loan.

It’s what he does.
