Sol Campbell fancies a move to Newcastle United but may be too costly for Hughton. However Matthew Kilgallon looks like a more affordable target.

Campbell is currently trying to sort out the ramifications of getting out of his ill-fated contract at Notts County, but he found time recently to go public about his interest in joining Newcastle United. Campbell said:

I have been approached by several clubs and, yes, it is correct to say that Newcastle United are one of them.

People might be surprised to hear me say that I would be very interested in a move there, but I have my reasons.

Newcastle are a big club and could be heading back to the Premier League. It appeals. If we can sort it all out at the tribunal I would hope to be playing within weeks from now.

I’m training every day with Arsenal, feel fit, as fit as ever, and now I really need some matches. But to sort out the mess at Notts County, a Football League tribunal seems to be the only way out.” (more…)

Thanks to last night’s win over Sheffield Wednesday we go 3rd in the Championship, behind Cardiff and ‘Boro on goal difference, sharing 7 points with 5 other teams. Chris Hughton said of the game:

I don’t think it was the prettiest win, but nonetheless it was very pleasing.

I think we needed that second goal for the game to open up but their keeper has made some terrific saves.

We got the early goal like we’d hoped and it was a great goal, real route one stuff and another fantastic finish from Shola.

After that both sides have had a couple of good chances and we’ve got Steve Harper to thank for two great saves in the second-half.

But we’ve got the win and that’s the most important thing.

We’re back up to third and confidence is high and two successive wins.” (more…)
