Arsenal loan Campbell to Olympiacos

Group stage contenders Olympiacos FC have drafted in 21-year-old Costa Rican international striker Joel Campbell on a season-long loan from play-off entrants Arsenal FC.

Arsenal FC forward Joel Campbell has joined Olympiacos FC on a season-long loan "to gain further first-team experience".

The Costa Rican international, 21, who signed for the Gunners two years ago from Deportivo Saprissa SAD in his homeland, spent last term on the books of Real Betis Balompié and the 2011/12 campaign with FC Lorient.

The Pireaus club's latest recruit has scored seven goals in 25 international appearances. On Saturday he linked up his team-mates in Germany, where they are preparing for the new season and their participation in the UEFA Champions League group stage. Arsenal enter the competition in the play-off round.
