VILLARREAL’S Nigeria international, Ikechukwu Uche, is unfazed by competition in the squad following the arrival of  Joel Campbell on loan from Arsenal.

  The Gunners higher ups have struck a deal with their Spanish counterparts for the Costa Rica international to remain at the Estadio El Madrigal until the end of the 2014 – 2015 seasons.

  Joel Campbell will compete for a first team shirt in attack along with Ikechukwu Uche, Luciano Vietto and Giovanni dos Santos if the team’s recent lineups are anything to go by.

  ‘’Welcome to Villarreal @joel_campbell12.  I wish you the best! Good luck!,’’ Ikechukwu Uche said.

 Joel Campbell is familiar to the La Liga, having worn the jersey of Real Betis during the 2012 – 2013 season, before moving to Greece for another loan spell with Olympiakos last term.

  Ikechukwu Uche has been named in the starting 11 16 times this season, out of a possible 20, while he started two other games on the bench.

The former Getafe man will reach the 100-goal landmark since his arrival in Spain if he scores against Barcelona at the Nou Camp on Sunday.
