Campbell departs Notts County after one game

Sol Campbell has left the club by mutual consent after the former England defender asked to cancel his contract.

Notts County have confirmed Sol Campbell has left the club by mutual consent after the former England defender asked to cancel his contract following only one game. Reports emerged on Wednesday morning claiming the 35-year-old had walked out on the League Two club despite only agreeing a lucrative five-year deal at Meadow Lane last month. County chief executive Peter Trembling told the club's website, nottscountyfc.co.uk: "While we are disappointed that Sol felt that he could not adjust to the long-term nature of the project under way at Notts County, we obviously wish him the best with the remainder of his career and hope that he is able to obtain a place where he can play at international level ahead of the 2010 World Cup."
