Arsenal are in talks with SC Camburr about a collaboration that would see the Dutch side loan Arsenal’s players.

The Dutch second division side sent delegates to London this week in order to discuss what they hope will become a mutually beneficially arrangement.

Camburr have already benefited from loaning youngsters from Manchester City (Albert Rusnak and Jack Byrne) and they are hopeful of coming to a formal arrangement with Arsenal.

Technical manager, Foeke Booy is cautious, however, of turning into a club swamped with mercenaries. “On the contrary,” he said. “We don’t want to become a NAC Breda or Vitesse.”

Vitesse are seen as Chelsea’s ‘feeder’ club.

The Dutch side are hopeful of striking an agreement with Arsenal that will see our youngsters play in the yellow and blue of their side but discussions are still at an early stage.

“It is not yet that far,” Booy added. “It [the visit to London] was a broad working visit that involved all sorts of things.”

Booy travelled to London with two directors, Ard de Graaf and Gerald van den Belt.

“Both clubs will first start thinking about what we could possibly do for each other.”

Camburr are based in the city of Leeuwarden and were formed in 1964, just seven years before Unai Emery was born.
