Campbell convinces Arsenal boss Wenger to hand him new deal

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will hand Sol Campbell a new one-year contract.

The Times says Wenger will sit down with Campbell next week to discuss the finer points of the new deal, but after much deliberation has decided he wants to keep him at the club.

The Gunners manager's original plan was for Campbell to provide emergency cover for his depleted group of centre backs, but since the player regained match fitness he has emerged as one of Arsenal’s most consistent performers in the last third of the season.
