Arsenal loan starlet Joel Campbell has admitted that he is still waiting to receive a clear indication on his long-term future from the Gunners, after claiming an important landmark with Greek champions Olympiakos.
Campbell is on loan in Athens and helped Olympiakos make sure of keeping the Greek Super League title last weekend, with a 2-0 victory over Panthrakikos.
The 21-year-old's contribution to that success has been considerable, with 10 goals and 11 assists in all competitions during a third season on the spin on loan away from the Emirates.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has not offered the Costa Rica international any guarantees over being given a chance to prove his worth in the Premier League next season despite that form though, with Campbell admitting that his future remains uncertain.
He is quoted by club blog Gooner Talk as stating last night: “For me personally and for my CV this means a lot.
“I’m playing Champions League football and at 21-years-old this is very important because it is my first step in my career as a footballer. I hope to continue to win many more titles in this or any other group.
“I don’t know what will happen [with Arsenal]. I have two years left on my contract with Arsenal they’ll decide what will happen.”
The versatile forward has now played in three different European league since signing for Arsenal in 2011, for Lorient, Real Betis and currently Olympiakos, due to a combination of work permit complication and the need for regular first-team football.
Curious Gunners fans were given a glimpse of Campbell's raw talent in the Champions League last month, when he curled home a stunning strike from distance against Manchester United in the first leg of their last-16 tie.
