Manchester United legend Andy Cole has revealed Sol Campbell held talks with Aston Villa before joining Notts County.

Discussing Campbell's departure in his column for the Independent, Cole wrote: "Sol will be fine. I know that he spoke to Aston Villa and Newcastle before signing for Notts County.

"I know he could have earned more money elsewhere. I also believe he's got a good two years at least at a high level left in him. He won't struggle for employment playing football."
