Ex-Tottenham, Arsenal star Campbell pondering candidacy to become Mayor of London

Former England international Sol Campbell is being implored to run for the Mayor of London title in 2016.

It is believed that the 40-year old ex-Arsenal and Tottenham centre-back is currently pondering whether or not he will put forward his name to become a candidate to replace current London Mayor Boris Johnson next year.

Campbell is being lined up by the Conservative party to go after the Mayoral role of England's capital and admits he would love to help the boroughs around his home city.

"We'll see what happens. A few conversations have to take place," he told The Sun.

"I'm London through and through. It's about getting more of the wealth in central London to help the boroughs."

During his playing career, Campbell won two Premier League titles and three FA Cups with the Gunners as well as one League Cup with Spurs and a FA Cup with Portsmouth while representing England on 73 occasions.
