Vermaelen happy learning from Arsenal veteran Campbell

Thomas Vermaelen says his game is improving playing alongside Arsenal veteran Sol Campbell.

Campbell, 36, returned to the club in January and Belgian defender Vermaelen says he is benefiting from working with the England international.

"I can learn a lot from him," Vermaelen told Arsenal TV Online. "He speaks a lot on the pitch and for young players and a young team it is important to have somebody with a lot of experience who talks a lot on the pitch."
