Sol signs new contract with Pompey

Sol signs new contract with Pompey

Pompey have been dealt the brilliant news that captain Sol Campbell has signed new and improved contract with Pompey.

A thrilled Campbell told the Pompey Site, 'I'm delighted to have signed a new contract.

'It's dragged on a bit but everything's been resolved. There's always a bit of transfer speculation around the transfer window but thankfully it's over now and I can concentrate on playing football.

'The clubs moving forward with a talented squad and plans for the new training ground. The club is certainly going in the right direction'.

Campbell's new contract will see him stay with Pompey until the end of the 2008/09 season at least.

So far this season has been a bit stop start for the England international, with two England recalls aborted due to injury setbacks, but it is hoped that the Pompey captain will be fit to return for the match with Liverpool on Saturday week.

This is tremendous news for Pompey and is a near perfect end to what has been a pretty good day for me personally, to say I am delighted is an understatement!

At last some great news from the club, our skipper is staying. That puts to rest the rumours of Villareal and Newcastle.

No Crawley return for Tubbs

Tubbs doesn't have a future at Pompey, he's on the transfer-list but offloading him could be difficult given his wages. These wouldn't be anywhere within Crawley's reach.

Pitfalls of Sheffield Wednesday loanee returning

As Catlin put it 'the gamble' of aiming sign Sheffield Wednesday loanee Lavery has to be one Pompey fans understand. It isn't as cut and dried as saying 'he's a free agent' sign him!

Lassie coming home...well sort of!

A-box-to-box player, capable of defensive duties, with ability to burst forward with intent to make things happen - Diarra is Pompey's man and wants an England return. I jest of course!

Will pair stay at Fratton?

It's been made (more than once) clear by Catlin Pompey want Davies & Hollands to stay. Both (also more than once) have said they want to this - deals have to be right for all concerned.
