Notts County are close to signing former England centre-half Sol Campbell.
It’s expected that the deal will be completed today after the 34 year old held talks with the club over the weekend and again on Monday.
It was first reported that Campbell would be taking on a coaching role alongside Director of Football Sven-Goran Eriksson but it’s now understood that he’ll be signing in a playing capacity only.
If Campbell’s move goes through it would be the biggest signing for the Magpies since the club were taken over by a Middle-East consortium in July.
With Arsenal he twice won the Premier League title and the FA Cup three times and was in the Double-winning team of 2002. Campbell also won 73 caps for England but hasn’t featured in the national side since Fabio Capello took over as coach.
He made 32 appearances for Portsmouth last season but left the South Coast club in the summer.
