The Evening Chronicle is reporting breaking news that they understand Sol Campbell, married just 9 days ago, is about to sign for Newcastle United.

The news is that the former Tottenham, Arsenal and Portsmouth defender is expected to complete a medical and become Chris Hughton’s third summer signing following James Perch and Dan Gosling to Tyneside.
This is big surprise to us, as we thought it was just paper talk, but although he’s now 35, Sol will bring significant solidity – not to mention tremendous experience – to the Newcastle defense, and he looked good at Arsenal earlier this year.
We are very pleased with this news – but what do you think – assuming it is true?
