Celtic fans may have to wait another month before finding out if Sol Campbell wants to sign for the Parkhead club.

The 35-year-old arrived in Glasgow on Tuesday for a look around Celtic Park as he ponders Neil Lennon's offer of a contract.

Campbell, whose contract at Arsenal has expired, revealed he is still no closer to signing a deal with the Parkhead club and that he will hold talks with other interested parties, including Gunners' boss Arsene Wenger.

"I'm here to get a feel for the place more than anything else," Campbell told the Daily Record.

"I have to talk to Arsenal as well because they are still at the table, I have to talk to everybody but the main thing for me right now is my wedding and honeymoon. I don't think I'll be committing myself to any club until after that."

Campbell, who was was also given a tour of Glasgow city centre as well as the club`s Lennoxtown training complex, insists Celtic`s European ambition is also an important issue.

He added: "I've met with Neil Lennon. The club know they will win the league or finish second. It depends on where they want to go in Europe."

Another Celtic target, Jimmy Bullard, claims he too, has not yet made a decision over his future.

"I am in the middle of talking to both clubs," the 31-year-old Hull City midfielder told the Daily Record.

"I am not going to say anything about the future until I get home. I have just been to the Algarve on holiday and it was good to get away from football and get my thoughts right.

"I have not spoken to Hull about it yet and I don`t really know what the script is. I am contracted to Hull at the minute. If someone tells me I am going here or there then I will have to have a look at those things.

"I have a decision to make so let`s see where the future takes me."
