Signing Of Sol Campbell To Be Announced By Notts County

sol campbell Free agent Sol Campbell, an FA Cup winner with Portsmouth in 2008 who recently left the club after the expiration of his contract, is to be officially announced as a Notts County player at a press conference this afternoon at 15:00 BST, according to Sky Sports News.

The move would be an extraordinary coup for director of football Sven Goran-Eriksson, who has already secured the signing of Manchester City’s fledgling goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, whom he managed at Eastlands.

Notts County historian Colin Slater is adamant that a deal has been struck, informing Sky that “He’s coming quite simply as a player, there is no coaching role. It’s definite he will be unveiled at 3pm. He has agreed to sign.”

Slater continued, “Sven said that he had been fascinated and challenged by the Notts County project, and I can only imagine that Sol Campbell feels the same, and that project is to be a Championship club within the next five years.

“We do not know how rich the owners are,” he added.

Campbell is an ex-England international who accumulated 73 caps, 33 of them under the national tutelage of Eriksson. His career peak was at Arsenal, where he won two Premier League titles and a hat-trick of FA Cups. He scored in the Champions League final in 2006 but ultimately ended up on the losing side.
