Defender Sol Campbell has signed for English Premier League football club Newcastle on a one-year deal.

35-year-old Campbell joins the newly promoted club after less than a year with Arsenal, his second spell with the Londoners in a career which has spanned four clubs before Newcastle and has seen him win 73 England caps.

Campbell, who appeared in six consecutive major international tournaments for England between 1996 and 2006, began his career at Tottenham before moving to Arsenal and then Portsmouth.

He has won two Premier League titles, four FA Cup winner's medals and one League Cup winner's medal.
