Sol Campbell handed number 31
Sol Campbell is now an accepted member of the Arsenal squad.
Arsene Wenger made history last week by re-signing a former player for the first time with free-agent Campbell arriving as the manager’s sole signing of the January transfer window so far.
The 35-year-old impressed for Arsenal’s reserves against West Ham on last Tuesday and signed a six-month contract with the club on Saturday afternoon.
Campbell has come to provide experienced back-up for much preferred centre backs Gallas and Vermaelen and is reportedly on a £20,000-a-week wage at the club.
On his second coming though, Sol could not reclaim the number 23 shirt which he previously modeled so the former Spurs man has been handed the number 31 jersey.
