Sol Campbell re-signs for Arsenal

In January 2010 Transfer window on January 12, 2010 by Highbury N5 Editor


“I have signed for Arsenal until the end of the season, and it’s fantastic, great, marvellous.” – Sol Campbell


Statement from the club…of sorts: Tonight’s Reserve team to face West Ham United at Upton Park features Sol Campbell, who plays tonight on a Reserve League registration, with a view to a permanent move back to Arsenal Football Club.


It comes as no suprise really that Sol Campbell has re-signed for Arsenal. An announcement should be made by the club shortly.

What’s more surprising is that Wenger has broken his policy of never re-signing players. I don’t know whether to be excited or worried that despite there being plenty of alternatives out there (that might have been more expensive), the boss has gone for the cheapest option.

At Pompey Sol still looked a decent defender and will no doubt help guide Vermaelen, who is still young for a center back, and Djourou who is quite like Campbell in his style.

He has played one game this season though, its a gamble, but it could means funds are being saved for investment in other parts of the team …..

Welcome back Sol.

What do you make of the Sol Campbell re-signing?

note. the club announced the signing on the website and then pulled the announcement.
