Arsenal`s Brazilian midfielder Denilson has confirmed that he has agreed to extend his loan at Sao Paulo for another year. After a shaky start back at the club that reared him last year, which saw him sent off twice in his first three games and become embroiled in an argument with Sao Paulo`s fans, the midfielder settled and has performed very well in the Brasileira. Sao Paulo had wanted to buy Denilson as a result, but could not afford his wages.
However, it looks as though Arsenal have agreed to loan him for another year. Denilson himself told Gazeta Espativa, 'I don't know what happened. I just expressed an interest in staying at Sao Paulo for at least another year. The chiefs on Arsenal's board helped.
'I didn't talk to Arsene Wenger. My lawyer and I met Sao Paulo's board and we agreed it would be better if I stayed at the club, and they reached an agreement with Arsenal."
The Brazilian press is reporting (though this is unconfirmed) that Sao Paulo will be paying a higher proportion of Denilson`s wages on this occasion and that the deal includes a clause allowing Arsenal the right to sell him if another club makes a permanent offer. Arsenal don`t tend to confirm these sorts of details though, so treat that information with due regard.
Meanwhile, Spanish side Real Betis have confirmed a deal to take Arsenal's Costa Rica striker Joel Campbell on loan for next season. Having signed from Deportivo Saprissa last summer, Campbell immediately took a loan spell at Lorient due to work permit issues, scoring 3 goals. He will join up with his new teammates for pre season training.
