Sol Campbell admits that he is very much interested in a move to Newcastle and revealed that they are one of the clubs that is keen on signing him.
The former England defender left Notts County after just one appearance and is eagerly waiting for Notts to release his registration so that he could carry his football career forward.
The Magpies chief told ESPN Soccernet that an agreement has been put on the table following talks with Gordon Taylor on Tuesday, which now needs Campbell’s seal of approval.
“I am eager to play again, and once I have officially left Notts County I can go to the football authorities and obtain dispensation to sign for another club. As I moved to Notts County as a free agent and I will be a free agent again, my submission will be that I have only been with one club this season, not two, and should be allowed to play on.”
“In an effort to resolve this situation, I would be prepared to sign a confidentiality agreement so long as it is only until the end of the season. It sounds as if we are making progress and I am sure my lawyers will show me the compromise agreement some time later today,” he said on wednesday.
Campbell has been in talks with West Brom, and has even been linked with Arsenal and Juventus, and would now expect more clubs to show their hand as his release from Notts County takes a significant step forward.
“I have been approached by several clubs, and yes, it is correct to say that Newcastle is 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. Also, Newcastle is a big club and could be heading back to the Premier League. It appeals,” says Campbell.
