Defender could be short-term solution to injury crisis

Out of contract defender Sol Campbell has, according to various newspaper reports, been invited to train with Manchester United, with a view to signing a short-term contract with the Premier League Champions.

United were forced to play midfielders Darren Fletcher and Michael Carrick in defence for Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Wolfsburg, and so signing Campbell, who has been without a club since leaving League Two side Notts County, would offer some cover, and experience at the back.

The 35-year-old is currently training with Arsenal to maintain fitness, and said of the rumours:

"I have heard nothing officially from Manchester United, but there have been suggestions and of course, it would be a great move for me, if it happens,

"I shall just have to wait and see if a call comes through the right channels.

"Of course I would love to play for Manchester United, but I am not counting any chickens, just waiting to see what happens. I am training as usual at Arsenal, and would go to train at Manchester United if I was asked."
