Arsenal’s Joel Campbell to join Villarreal on loan

According to Sky Sports, Arsenal forward Joel Campbell will join Villarreal on loan until the end of the season, in a deal that sees the Gunners sign defender Gabriel Paulista.

Arsenal’s pursuit for Gabriel Paulista required them to send Joel Campbell on loan for the rest of the campaign, and given how little the Costa Rica international has played this season, manager Arsene Wenger has happy to let him leave to get more game time in the Spanish La Liga. He will return for the summer, as it’s unknown if he has a buying option attached to his contract.

The 22-year-old is happy for the chance for first-team football in Spain, and said following the news: “I hope to work hard to do things in the best way. I want to spend these four months well and succeed here. I am very happy.”
