Is Sol Campbell's Notts County dream over?
Wednesday 23 September 2009
Sol Campbell's future as a Notts County player is in doubt after only one game, according to reports this morning.
The 35-year-old agreed a five-year deal at Meadow Lane at the start of this month for a reported £40,000 a week after leaving Portsmouth at the end of last season.
The former England defender was the most high-profile recruit to the playing staff this summer following County's takeover by Munto Finance and Sven-Goran Eriksson's arrival as director of football.
The takeover deal is now being investigated by the Football League and, after making his debut in last Saturday's shock 2-1 defeat at Morecambe, Campbell appears to have had a change of heart.
The former Arsenal and Tottenham defender has reportedly asked to leave the club and has said his goodbyes to team-mates.
