Sol Campbell – will take 50% wage cut to join Newcastle

As we have mentioned, Sol is already engaged to Geordie girl Fiona Barrett, and they have recently bought the beautiful Hallington Hall in Northumberland.

And after many many seasons of high wages, Sol is hardly short of money, and it seems he would like to settle in Northumberland.

The report in the Sun says that 34 year-old Sol will agree to Newcastle’s wage offer of £15K a week, which is half of what he was getting last season at Portsmouth, for perhaps his last season of a wonderful career.

If he does well this season on Tyneside,  and we are promoted, a new one year deal could always be worked out for next season, but it’s good to have players come to the club, for other than  just the money.

We think Sol would be an outstanding buy for the Newcastle club, and hope it goes through without a hitch.

Comments welcome.

    I used to know Sol when he was younger and playing in London he is a Stand up guy, if you look throughout his career you can clearly see that, he always give 100% and I recon a CB can play till at the top level at 36 if he has some young legs around him, he would surely be a great signing for us especially with Young Stephen Taylor still needing some guidence…

    I think Sol and Tayls at the back with Simpson and Enrique will form a solid defensive unit.

    Now sign McLoven and Hamman on frees too!

    Get Rid of Barton & Collo and thats good work.

    Duff has completed his move to Fulham now.

    Alright well at least that makes sense.. he’s getting ready to settle down and retire, but wants to ease out of it. I’ll buy it.
