Campbell hints at Pompey exit
02 Jul 2009 - 08:56:07
Veteran defender Sol Campbell has dropped a strong hint that he will not be returning to Portsmouth next season.
The 34-year-old centre-half is out of contract at Fratton Park after three seasons with the south coast outfit but has suggested that the current uncertainty surrounding the ownership of the club will force him to seek pastures new.
Pompey have already released a number of out of contract players and sold Glen Johnson to Liverpool for around £18million while Sulaiman Al-Fahim's protracted takeover of the club is completed.
"I'm out of contract and I'm going to listen to different offers," Campbell told Sky Sports News.
"With Portsmouth they have to organise themselves and there's a lot of things happening there.
"I want to make the right choice. In the next two to three years I want to be in the right situation.
"The chairman, the manager and people like that, I like them to be really close together to move the club on.
"At the moment with Portsmouth it just seems that there is a lot of things in the background.
"It may resolve itself, I don't know, but for me, as a player, I want to be in the right environment."
