Redknapp gives glowing reference for Campbell

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has advised other Premier League managers to consider signing Sol Campbell him in January following his dramatic departure from Notts County. "Obviously they are a forward-thinking club but it is difficult when you have been a top player and you suddenly drop down all those divisions," Redknapp told Sky Sports News.

"Obviously he has looked at it and thought 'what am I doing here' but to be fair to him, he's walked away from a big contract so money was not the big factor for him."

Redknapp admires Campbell after working with him at Portsmouth but he has already ruled out a move for the defender due to his acrimonious departure from Tottenham for bitter rivals Arsenal.

"I couldn't bring Sol to Tottenham, it's impossible. All I said was that I think he can still play Premier League football somewhere," said Redknapp.

"It would be a bigger problem that it would be worth (bringing Campbell to Spurs), but if a manager rang me up from another Premier League club looking for somebody, I'd say 'take him'."
