Former Emirates man on his way to the north-east.
Newcastle United have beaten Celtic in an attempt to sign Sol Campbell on a free transfer.
The out-of-contract defender has failed to gain a new deal at Arsenal, prompting speculation that he will move to what will potentially be his last club before retirement.
The 35-year-old got married on Saturday and has moved to the North East. According to The Sunday Express, Campbell will sign for Chris Hughton’s side when he returns from his honeymoon. (Goal.com)
If indeed this source is correct then Chris Hughton has got himself something of a bargain. The 35 year old still has a season or two in the tank and he proved during his return to the Emirates that he can still perform at the highest level.
Apparently the Toon Army also beat Sunderland to his signature and that must be something of an added bonus.
