Sol Campbell could yet complete a sensational move to League Two outfit Notts County, after the ex-England international was spotted in Nottingham with the Magpies' director of football Sven Goran Eriksson. The former Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal stopper - who has 73 caps for his country - left Portsmouth at the end of last season following the expiration of his contract with the south coast club. The 34-year-old has since been linked with a string of clubs, both at home and abroad, including Blackburn, Aston Villa, Everton, Newcastle and St Etienne. While Notts County, who have recently been making national headlines following their takeover by Munto Finance and appointment of former England coach Eriksson, have also also been tipped to land Campbell, having already spent a club record fee on Manchester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel. And the likelihood of the imposing defender joining the basement division outfit amazingly increased on Thursday, after the Nottingham Evening Post reported that Campbell, Eriksson and County executive chairman Peter Trembling had met a city centre restaurant. However, with Campbell believed to still be harbouring hopes of being picked in Fabio Capello's England squad for next summer's World Cup, a move to a Premier League club is the expected outcome.
