Arsenal new recruit Joel Campbell has joined Lorient on a one-year loan deal, the French Ligue 1 side confirmed.

The 19-year-old Costa Rican international was signed on a five-year deal by Arsenal last week from Saprissa, but problems obtaining a work permit prompted the Gunners to send him out on loan.

Campbell made his debut for Costa Rica in June during the CONCACAF Gold Cup, scoring in a 5-0 win over Cuba. Lorient are currently ninth in the French first division after four matches.
