'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Sol Campbell undergoes medical

Sky Sports are reporting that Sol Campbell will have a medical on Tuesday.

The 35 year old is looking for a new club and after marrying a northern lass a few weeks ago it seem he is keen to settle in the North East.

Campbell has had talks with Celtic and Sunderland but it appears Newcastle are the club he's opted for.

Some will question his motives and see it as him getting one last pay cheque.

And some will wonder how a player with only one or two years left in professional football fits Newcastle's policy of signing cheap under 25 year olds.

The fact remains however that we are desperately short at the back and with Taylor set to miss the start of the season reinforcements, and proven reinforcements at that, are needed.

Campbell will bring a lot of experience and will be able to do a job for us this season. And for free it might be quite a shrewd move.

Damn...well, there goes any hope of him never showing his face again in the Premier League.

If I was a Toon fan i'd be very wary. Scumball has let down every club he's been to. Lied to Spurs for 12 months so as to run his contract down and go on a free (to bitter rivals). When at Arse*al he refused to play the second half of a game. He then sued Portsmouth at the height of their financial crisis. Then signed for Notts County and turned his back on them after one game. An absolute cretin of a man!

Ironically both comments from Spurs fans who hate Sol Campbell, grow up lads eh, Newcastle United are not in the market for superstars anymore, we need solid players to maintain our return to the Prem, if Sol does a job for a year then thats fine by me.

ken, I'd say Sol doing a job for a year is far from certain. That's why it's a risk, a huge risk signing Campbell. I won't deny that I deeply dislike the man,though.
