Campbell has failed to make a first team appearance under Arsene Wenger since joining the club in August 2011, having been sent out on loan for the last two seasons.

The Costa Rica international has spent time with Real Betis and FC Lorient, with the Spanish side requesting to have their loan deal for Campbell extended beyond last season.

But the 21-year-old will move to Greece as he looks to gain some experience and compete for a starting berth in Wenger's side next year.

Campbell has impressed at international level, scoring seven goals in 25 appearances for Costa Rica.
