Costa Rican international Joel Campbell has been sent on another loan spell, this time to Sporting CP.

The 24-year-old spent the last season at Arsenal, but never managed to cement his place in the starting XI.

Campbell was impressive in a few games, but never really managed to keep up the performances.

However, Campbell feels he did enough at Arsenal to deserve more playing time, but was ready to move on.

Quoted by A Bola, Campbell said: “I think I deserved to play more after what I did last year, but now is a new stage.”

Perhaps a loan spell is an ideal chance for Campbell to get some regular playing time under his belt. The arrival of Lucas Perez at Arseanl would have only served to make things even more difficult for Campbell.

Campbell has another couple of years left on his contract at the North London club.
