Sol Campbell is on the brink of signing for Premier League new boys Swansea City – according to The Sun anyway.
I would love to provide you with more detail about the ins and outs of the wheelings and dealings over the possible transfer but there simply isn’t any as the whole piece is barely forty words long. Here it is in full:
SOL CAMPBELL is being lined up for a sensational move to Swansea.Swans need defensive free agents after FIFA blocked deadline day moves for Darnel Situ and Rafik Halliche.
And former England ace Campbell, 37, is currently without a club.
Bizarrely, the Currant Bun doesn’t claim the story as an exclusive despite the usual eagerness to do so with other stories and the fact that it has not appeared in any other publications. It all suggests that the story is more theory than fact and is therefore rather unlikely to actually happen.
If it does, however, I will nobly eat my hat as long as the now slightly-inflated former Arsenal defender hasn’t scoffed it already.
