Having famously walked out on Notts County after just one game, Sol Campbell has been again linked with a move to us as he wants to atone for his earlier hiccup in joining the Meadow Lane side. Speaking to ESPN, he said:

‘Newcastle are a big club and could be heading back to the Premier League. It appeals. I have been approached by several clubs, and yes, it is correct to say that Newcastle are one of them. People might be surprised to hear me say that I would be very interested in a move there, but I have my reasons.

I have spoken with Gordon Taylor and he will impress upon the League the urgency of the case and try to make a tribunal hearing a priority. If we can sort it all out at the tribunal I would hope to be playing within weeks from now.

I am training every day with Arsenal, feel fit – as fit as ever – and now I really need some matches. But, to sort out the mess at Notts County, a Football League tribunal seems to be the only way out.’

Given the form of Zurab and the reliance already on a seriously raw Tamas Kadar, it could be a masterstroke.
