Manchester City make late move for Campbell

English centreback Sol Campbell,who is now available on a free,may end up going to the Eastlands instead of the South Coast.

Campbell,who chose not to extend his contract after five seasons in the top flight with the Gunners was undergoing a medical at Fratton Park and was expected to join Portsmouth ,but reports say Manchester City have made a late move for him.

If Campbell does move to City,the Eastlands club may then sell Sylvain Distin to Portsmouth instead for a fee rumoured to be about 4 million pounds.Campbell’s arrival will certainly strengthen the back four of Stuart Pearce’s side as they aim for a spot in Europe this season.
