Newcastle United are ready to sell veteran defender Sol Campbell in January.

The People says Toon are ready to listen to offers for Campbell in the January transfer window as the defender struggles to come to terms with the sacking of Chris Hughton.

A Newcastle source said "Sol is a professional through and through but he has taken the departure of Chris Hughton harder than the rest of the players.

"Chris was one of the main ­reasons he came up to Newcastle and there was even talk about him joining the coaching staff."
