Sol Campbell (Portsmouth)

Notts County have confirmed the signing of Sol Campbell on a free transfer for a five-year deal.

The League Two club unveiled the 34-year-old former Tottenham, Arsenal and Portsmouth defender at a press conference at Meadow Lane on Tuesday afternoon.

Notts County manager Ian McParland said: “Sol’s record speaks for itself and he’s achieved just about everything in the game.

“He’s a great player and a great organiser and his experience will be invaluable to our push for promotion this season.

“We are very happy that he has taken on the challenge and we are looking forward to getting him settled into the team and seeing him pull on a Notts County shirt as soon as possible.”

Campbell, 34, was a free agent after his contract with Pompey expired last month and has signed a five-year deal.

“If we win promotions, it is possible that I will play in the Premier League again,” said Campbell.

“I am confident that something special is being created at the club which will yield a club and a team able to match the ambitions of the new owners, management and proud fans.

“It’s a challenge but I think everyone connected with the club is prepared for that. And what a fantastic dream to have to keep winning promotions and get Notts County back into the Premier League.

“I want to be a part of that and I am genuinely excited by what the club is trying to achieve.”
