When Sol Campbell signed for The Magpies, there were many who thought he just got his directions wrong when he ended up at Notts County. An ex England international with a distinguished career, playing for a League Two club, but for how long? The accusations levelled against Campbell were that he walked out during a training session. Campbell meanwhile, dismisses those accusations altogether.
Nevertheless, regardless of what happened at Notts County, Campbell is still a decent player and could do more than a job for us. There are questions over his eligibility as Notts County are still to release the player’s registration. This means that Campbell is prohibited from moving clubs as long as his previous club hold onto his registration.
A Football League commission will hear the case of Campbell’s registration on December 10th. If the commission clears Campbell to play for another club, it is thought that he will join his preferred choice, Newcastle United. The player is lacking match fitness and probably wouldn’t be available until the New Year.
