Sol Campbell Signed for Newcastle United for a Year

Sol Campbell has finally completed his move to newly promoted Newcastle United as a free agent. The 35-year-old has been looking for a new club almost throughout the summer after failing to agree a new deal with Arsenal.

The central defender joined the Gunners last January for the second time in his career and his short-term contract expired this summer. Arsenal wanted to keep him for one more season, but the former Tottenham Hotspur player wanted a two-year contract.

Sol Campbell was then linked with Celtic and Sunderland too. At one point, it looked he was very close to joining Celtic who were reported ready to hand him a two-year contract. However, Sol Campbell, who married just few weeks back, did not want to go to Scotland.

Sol Campbell is delighted to have joined the Magpies and is looking forward to working with manager Chris Hughton. Newcastle United manager is also happy to have signed the experienced defender.

Sol Campbell said to the media, “To join a club such as Newcastle United, with its proud tradition, heritage and magnificent support, is absolutely tremendous for me.

I'd like to thank Chris Hughton for putting his faith in me and aim to repay him and the supporters by giving everything I possibly can to help re-establish this great club in the top-tier of English football.

I just want to play and can't wait to get started. There's a real buzz about the place and that's great. I've played at St. James' Park numerous times and always found it a fantastic place to play, there's always a tremendous atmosphere.”

Sol Campbell is 35 now and has already seen his best, but still he is a quality and highly experienced defender whom any manager can rely on. Chris Hughton’s first mission is to keep Newcastle at the Premier League and Campbell has all the qualities to help him in his pursuit.
