Celta take Arsenal striker Vela on loan
MADRID -- Celta Vigo have taken Arsenal's young Mexican striker Carlos Vela on loan, the Primera Liga club said on their website on Wednesday.
Arsenal bought the sporting rights to the 16-year-old Guadalajara player in November after he impressed for Mexico at the Under-17 World Championship in Peru.
Vela top-scored with five goals in the tournament which Mexico won. He has yet to play for the London club.
Celta, who lost 2-1 at home to Real Madrid on Sunday, are eighth in the Primera Liga.
