Arsenal Star Not Leaving Just Yet

Arsenal Star Not Leaving Just Yet

Newcastle manager, Glen Roeder, has dismissed rumours that Arsenal centre back Sol Campbell will joing the magpies.

Roeder worked with Sol in the England set up and admires him as a footballer, but as the average age of the Newcastle squad creeps up, Roeder has decided time is not on Sol's side and it's an unacceptable risk.

'I have worked with Sol Campbell before at England level. I enjoyed working with him at France 98,' Roeder told the club's website.

'He is a very talented central defender, and I'm very aware of his ability. But I have to say Sol is not a player I am interested in signing.

'The crux of the matter is that if we are to sign another central defender, I would be looking to sign a younger player, although someone still with experience at this level.

'I am very conscious of the average age of the squad at the moment, and I want to slightly reduce that if I can.

'I do have two or three targets in that position, and if they were to become available then I would be interested.

'I've heard about the speculation linking us to Sol and I wanted to nip it in the bud. He's a good player and I wish him and England all the best at the World Cup.'

So, 8 million quid you say Mr Fenerbahce president?

Westl: Sol looked about as sharp as a spoon last night. He was booked inside a minute and also was lucky to get away with another two late lunges.
