Brown confirms Sol interest

Hull City boss Phil Brown has revealed that he has been offered the chance to sign Sol Campbell on a free transfer.

The 35-year-old former England defender is on the lookout for a new club after leaving Notts County earlier in the season.

Campbell left the League Two club in September just five weeks into a five-year contract after claiming he felt he could still play at a higher level.

The former Arsenal and Tottenham defender turned down the chance to join the Tigers when he was a free agent during the summer, but now appears interested in a move to the KC Stadium.

"I made an offer for Sol in the summer and he went elsewhere," manager Phil Brown told the Daily Express.

"He has been offered to us again and I am not aware if there is rival interest."

However, Brown has admitted that he is in no rush to speak to Campbell following his initial snub.

"I wouldn't be against the fact that I could speak to Sol Campbell, but I have done the chasing and it hasn't come around, so we will leave it at that," he added.

"I have left it with Sol with regards to an offer in the summer. The ball is in his court now.

"We have got three players that will go away in January (to the African Cup of Nations) but, fortunately for me, none of them are defenders. So we will see what the next two or three games brings."
