Real Sociedad sign Portuguese starlet Bruma from Galatasaray, whilst awaiting Campbell answer from Arsenal

Real Sociedad Anoeta

David Moyes still hopes to sign Joel Campbell from Arsenal, but has now secured Portuguese youngster Bruma from Galatasaray in the meantime.

After the Real Sociedad squad arrived in Austria for the next stage of their pre-season schedule over the weekend, there's finally good news on the transfer front for manager David Moyes.

Diario Vasco have confirmed that talented young Portuguese starlet Armindo Tue Na Bangna, more simply known as Bruma, will be joining Real Sociedad on loan from Turkish outfit Galatasaray.

Bruma is due to undergo a medical in the Basque city of San Sebastian on Tuesday, sign his contract with La Real and then swiftly travel on to Austria, where he'll get to work with his new team-mates at their training camp.

Minor details of the loan move are yet to be finalised, although the agreements between Real Sociedad, Galatasaray and the player are total. However, there are still one or two points to be ironed out with Sporting Lisbon, who apparently retain options over the economic rights of the 20-year-old.

The first reaction Bruma has made to Diario Vasco, has been to simply state he's "delighted" by the opportunity Moyes and Real Sociedad have offered.

Meanwhile and with Real Sociedad keen to move along swiftly with other transfer plans, Moyes is still waiting on a resolution over Arsenal forward Joel Campbell.

Keen to secure the services of the Costa Rica international, the former Everton and Manchester United boss has had to remain patient, whilst Arsenal have considered other offers for the player.

The latest to express their interest to Arsenal, according to Basque outlet Noticias de Gipuzkoa, are Turkish clubs Fenerbahçe and Besiktas. The latter regard Campbell as an option to replace former West Ham, Newcastle and Chelsea man, Demba Ba, who joined Shanghai Shenhua in China for a reported fee of €13.5 million at the end of June.

Benfica were also reported to have made a bid for Campbell recently, although talk of a move to the Portuguese side was quickly ruled out by their club president last week.

For now at least, unless any progress is made over the coming week, Moyes may have to wait until later in the summer before he gets to work with Campbell, who has frequently suggested his preferred option is Real Sociedad and a return to La Liga.

However, there is always the risk that Campbell could go with the money, given that both Turkish clubs could offer him significantly more than he'd get playing for Real Sociedad.
