Sol keen to keep on playing

Veteran Arsenal defender Sol Campbell claims he can continue playing in the Premier League for two more seasons.

The 35-year-old has resurrected his career in the top-flight following a successful second half of the season at the Emirates Stadium.

Campbell started the season at League Two club Notts County but left after making just one appearance.

He was invited to train with the Gunners by manager Arsene Wenger in November and was offered a short-term contract after impressing the Frenchman.

Campbell made 14 appearances and was named Arsenal's Player of the Month award for April and is now hoping to continue playing at the highest level.

"I want to stay and I want to give it my all for at least another year. I could do two but the manager never gives out two (year contracts)," he told the club's official website.

"Give me one year and I'll work every day and try to win a trophy and bring some kind of glory back to Arsenal.

"Deep inside I feel I've got two real gritty years left in me, the years in which I can affect things. If I'm in the team I can really make a difference. I know that. And after two years I will look at it again and we'll see.

"After that I might only be able to play games here and there, who knows, but I think I can be an influence and be positive and win games and be strong for two years."
