Sol Campbell Close to Join Celtic

Sol Campbell is very close to a move away from Arsenal to Scottish giants Celtic. The 35-year-old center back has recently talked with Celtic manager Neil Lennon who has recently been appointed as the Celtic boss permanently.

Sol Campbell has been a free agent after the end of the last season in Premier League. He also held talks with Arsenal officials over a new contract, but Arsenal is not interested to give him a two-year contract that he is demanding.

Celtic, on the other hand, is ready to hand him a two-year contract. So, there is every possibility Campbell may move to Scotland and play for Celtic next season.

Sol Campbell joined Arsenal on a 6-month deal last January and impressed with the Gunners. This was his second spell at the North London club after his highly successful five-year first stint during which he won 2 Premier League and 3 FA Cup titles with Arsenal.

Neil Lennon took over the managerial job at Celtic temporarily last season after Tony Mowbray had quit the job. However, Lennon has now been handed the job permanently after Celtic’s impressive performance under his guidance.

Lennon is now planning to sign some experienced players who could start performing for Celtic instantly. Besides Campbell, he is also interested to bring in Jimmy Bullard for a year on loan from Hull City and Charlie Mulgrew.

Sol Campbell, at 35, is now very near to the end of his career. Now, if he is given a two-year deal at Celtic, it is most likely he could end his career at the Scottish club.
