Arsenal star wants to stay at Emirates

Published Add your comment

Sol Campbell is keen to remain at Arsenal, but admits approaches from "massive club" Celtic are flattering.

The 35-year-old, who was a part of Arsenal's Invincibles 2003/2004 team, impressed after his return to his old club on a short-term deal during January. A new contract is on offer for the veteran, but has not yet been formally agreed.

"I worked very hard to get back to my best and to play in the Champions League again, and I would love the opportunity to continue at Arsenal," Campbell said on

"Although a one-year contract has been offered, these things take some time to thrash out - and I imagine Arsene has quite a lot to deal with at the moment, particularly with Fabregas."

Campbell added: "I am in no rush, I would like to stay with Arsenal if I could.

"However, Celtic are a massive club, a great club, with massive support."
