Newcastle wage cap allowed Notts County to sign Campbell

Newcastle United's new wage cap cost them the signing of Notts County star Sol Campbell.

The People says Newcastle have slapped a £15,000-a-week basic wage limit on all new players.

That's how much Danish striker Peter Lovenkrands accepted to return to Newcastle - plus £3,000 a week appearance money .

And it's one reason Sol Campbell, whose girlfriend lives in Newcastle, preferred to join Notts County for over double the money on offer at St James' Park.
