Pedro Botelho has joined South American Serie B club Atletico Paranaense in a permanent deal.

The Salvador-born 22 year-old returns to Brazil after four years in Europe, during which time he took in loan spells in Spain with Salamanca, Celta Vigo, Cartagena, Rayo Vallecano and most recently, Levante, who he helped guide to a Europa League place in La Liga, playing 15 times.

Everyone at Arsenal would like to wish Pedro well for his future career.
