Sol Campbell quits Notts County... after just one game

Table of Contents
Former England defender Sol Campbell has left Notts County by mutual consent just days after making his debut for the League Two club.

The 34-year-old agreed a five-year £40,000-a-week deal at the start of this month after deciding to leave Portsmouth over the summer.

He started Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Morecambe and that has proved to be his one and only appearance in a Magpies shirt.

Executive chairman Peter Trembling told the club's official website: "While we are disappointed that Sol felt that he could not adjust to the long-term nature of the project underway 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.

"The investment project is on track; we've brought in a lot of new players and resources into the club, but obviously this is a five-year project, not a five-week one.

"For any fan that bought a new Notts shirt and had 'Campbell' printed on the back, I am pleased to offer a voucher for the club shop for a replacement shirt."
