It’s been reported by Young Guns that Joel Campbell has had his application for a special talent work permit rejected, and consequently the 19-year-old will now move on loan, with clubs from France and Holland already showing an interest.
Arsenal had been expecting good news on Campbell, who is not eligible for a conventional work permit due to a lack of international appearances, despite appearing for Costa Rica recently in the U20 world cup and for the senior side in Copa America
. However, the FA panel were not convinced Joel should be granted a special work permit, meaning he is now forced to leave the club on loan.
We will keep you updated on the situation.
