How Bizarre Is The Campbell Situation?

Last updated : 12 January 2010 By Footy Mad - Editor

After signing a FIVE YEAR contract ... he played one game for them then said he wanted to join the OTHER Magpies ... Newcastle United.

Chris Hughton said he couldn't afford his wages, so he tried two lower league sides ... errrr .... Manchester United and Arsenal.

People laughed, but Arsenal have confirmed Campbell will feature for the reserves at West Ham tonight, with the prospect of re-signing with the Gunners.

The 35-year-old, who left Highbury for Portsmouth in the summer of 2006, has been training at the Gunners' Hertfordshire base since leaving Notts County.

A short statement on Arsenal's website said: "Tonight's reserve team to face West Ham United at Upton Park features Sol Campbell, who plays on a Reserve League registration, with a view to a permanent move back to Arsenal Football Club."
