Sol Campbell Newcastle bound

Sol Campbell who did quite well as Thomas Vermaelen’s central partner after William Gallas was ruled injured for the rest of the season in April is all set for a Toon move.
Which obviously means that Arsenal only has Vermaelen left with substantial experience as Laurent Koscielny is too raw and Johan Djourou is returning after a year’s layoff from injury. This situation is untenable – Wenger has to splash some cash to get a quality central defender with some annual rings.
Even by Wenger’s notoriously measured standards, the pace is maddeningly slow. We still need a goalkeeper and Alexandre Song can’t be left exposed as the only holding midfielder of note. It will be interesting to see what Fabregas’s demands are – it may center around transfers.
