It looks as if Sol Campbell will boldly go where no man has gone before… no not delving into the nether regions of this bikini babe but he may join Arsenal for the third time in his illustrious career. But why??
Having fallen out of favour with the new management at Newcastle, reports suggest that Sulzeer Jeremiah Campbell (Sol to you and me) will look to link up with Arsene Wenger once more as the Frenchman attempts to ease his defensive crisis. With centre backs Squillaci and Thomas Vermaelen injured, the Professor of Arsenal will call upon his most trusted pupil for a third (and maybe final) time.
It has emerged that Newcastle boss Alan Pardew will allow the former England Captain to leave for free as Arsenal try to sign him until the end of the season.
It would be a tremendous twist in the Sol Campbell story, after last season’s late push for the World Cup squad following a successful stint with Arsenal – which very nearly culminated in them actually achieving something – and after doing the unthinkable at the start of his career, that is leaving Spurs to join a bigger club that could actually win something.
What will the 36 year-old do next? Anyway, you missed a bit with that suncream Sol…
