Campbell To Leave In Transfer Window!

This comes just five months after he joined the club from Notts County.

Some newspapers claim that the former Arsenal and England centre-back has become "unsettled at St James's Park" but we can report that - after Steven Taylor signed a new five year deal - Alan Pardew is looking to off-load Campbell as soon as possible.

When Pardew was asked if Campbell would be going, the Toon boss side-stepped the question by saying: "That is a matter between Sol and myself". 

The former England star has hardly 'put himself out' since signing for the Geordies, turning up at training looking like a sumo wrestler, and looking well off the mark when he has played.

His best days are behind him.
