Former Gunner opens controversial Spurs transfer door - reports

Published Add your comment

England defender Sol Campbell has asked his agent to alert clubs to his services after being released by Newcastle United this summer, according to Metro.

The former Portsmouth and Notts County centre-back has failed to find a club since leaving St James' Park, but is hoping a club take a punt on him.

The ex-Arsenal defender is reportedly even open to a return to Tottenham Hotspur, 10 years on from his exit from White Hart Lane.


Campbell left Tottenham for Arsenal in 2001, and enjoyed ample success, winning the Premier League title twice, and the FA Cup three times with The Gunners.

Spells at Portsmouth, where he won another FA Cup, and Notts County following before he re-joined Arsenal for a second spell.

Campbell was subject of discriminative chants from Tottenham fans during his time as a Portsmouth player, and a return would be a surprise given his relationship with the North-London faithful.
