After being released by Notts County, Sol Campbell may be prevented from making a move to a new club before the January market.

After being released by Notts County, Sol Campbell may be prevented from making a move to a new club before the January market.

Former England defender Campbell has quit County after just one game, with the League Two club confirming he had left "by mutual consent" after asking to cancel his contract.

However, it's understood that under FIFA rules, Campbell is highly unlikely to be allowed to join another club having severed his ties with County. As an unattached player, a loan deal would obviously be out of the question.

According to the Premier League, only if the veteran can prove he has a just cause for quitting Meadow Lane - a change of heart or minor disagreement, for example, would not qualify - would he be able to sign for a top-flight team while the window is closed.
