Hands up how many fans recognise the name Joel Cambpell? Well done if you got that he is the young Arsenal player currently on loan at Real Betis, and no disrespect if you didn’t.
Cambpell joined the Gunners in 2011 however has not been able to gain a work permit to play for the club since and as a result has spent the last two seasons on loan, with the player keen to extend his latest move, according to Sky Sports News.
If Cambpell was feeling down in the dumps about not yet being able to make a single appearance for his parent club he is not exactly showing it, insisting that another season in Seville would be more than welcome particularly if Betis can finish off their impressive season by clinching a European spot. It is hard not to blame him given that it is probably far easier for a young Costa Rican to fit in at a Spanish club given the obvious similarities in the culture, further to that you couldn’t find many better Spanish cities to live than Seville.
Of course it is not in Cambpell’s hands but should Arsenal patience with the work permit system run out, the 20-year-old could well find himself taking up permanent residence in the cultural city.
