Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has backed Sol Campbell to be an ideal firefighter for Arsenal. In his column for The Sun, Redknapp wrote: "Wenger has done good business with Campbell. It will not cost Arsenal much, as I am sure it's a pay-as-you-play sort of deal.

"He will come in from time to time and relieve the pressure on Thomas Vermaelen and William Gallas.

"And Wenger can rely on Campbell to do the business.

"He will give 100 per cent and still has the ability to play Premier League football.

"I thought when he went to Notts County it was a mistake. He was far better than that. He is a good, solid, experienced figure, who now will be back at home with Arsenal.

"As well as being good on the pitch, Campbell will strike an inspiring figure for the club's young players."
