Arsenal man set for Parkhead?

VETERAN defender Sol Campbell is “seriously considering” a move to Celtic.

The former England international has reportedly been offered a new one-year deal to stay at Arsenal, where he spent the second half of last season after an ill-fated spell with Notts County.

But Celtic caretaker boss Neil Lennon has also held talks with Campbell and he could be tempted to join the Glasgow giants.

The 35-year-old told the Scottish Sun: “I’ve spoken with Neil about moving to Celtic. And I’ve been impressed with what he had to say.

“We’re talking, although we haven’t yet discussed figures. Nothing is set in stone.”

Campbell added: “I know Celtic are a massive club. I have to consider them. You can’t ignore it when such a fantastic club makes their interest known.

“Celtic is a serious possibility, but I am also talking to a few other clubs. I’m also giving Arsenal the respect they deserve. If the situation at Arsenal doesn’t resolve itself I know how interested Celtic are. And, yes, I’m seriously considering it.”
