Former Arsenal defender Sol Campbell admits he would love a return to the club, having been released by Newcastle at the end of last season.

The 36-year-old, hence, is available on a free transfer and, despite his age, is desperate to gain another contract, should the right offer come in.

And Campbell, who has trained with Arsenal this summer, would be delighted if Arsene Wenger came knocking once more.


"It would be nice to go back to Arsenal, for sure," Campbell told The Guardian. "I trained there for a month [after leaving Newcastle in May] and have been doing regular fitness work on my own since."

Whether or not Wenger makes a move for Campbell remains to be seen, but the Arsenal boss is known to be in the market for a centre-back.

Arsenal have seen bids for Phil Jagielka and Gary Cahill rejected in their pursuit of defensive reinforcements.
