Bruce calls time on Sol deal

22 Jul 2010 - 11:39:33

Sunderland manager Steve Bruce has ended his interest in Sol Campbell after agreeing a deal to sign Titus Bramble.

Bruce had held talks with the veteran Arsenal defender last week over a free transfer move to the Stadium of Light.

However, he has since returned to former club Wigan Athletic to sign fellow centre-half Bramble in a £1million deal.

The 28-year-old former Newcastle United defender will join the Black Cats subject to passing a medical.

"Now that we've got Titus, I think that's it for Sol," Bruce told The Journal.

"We had a chat with him and we talked about it, but we've got a better deal with Titus coming in.

"We're not looking to sign Sol Campbell anymore."

Speaking about Bramble, Bruce added: "He was absolutely outstanding for me for two years at Wigan and it is a fantastic deal for this football club.

"He has done extremely well over the last couple of years and I think he is going to be a big success at Sunderland.

"He was certainly the right player at the right price for me."
