Campbell ready to sign for Celtic after visiting training ground
The veteran defender travelled to Celtic Park on Tuesday as Hoops manager Neil Lennon steps up his efforts to recruit the 35 year-old.
Campbell spent five years at Arsenal and impressed during his second spell with the north London club after returning on a short-term deal in January.
He is now a free agent and Celtic are reportedly set to offer him a two-year deal to make the switch to the Clydesdale Bank Premier League, a move he has so far refused to rule out.
Speaking earlier this month, Campbell said: ”Football’s very important to me and I would give Celtic everything if I sign.”
Lennon is keen to strengthen his squad after being handed the manager’s job on a permanent basis, following a successful spell as caretaker boss in the wake of Tony Mowbray’s departure.
As well as Campbell, he has also been linked with a loan move for Hull City’s Jimmy Bullard, while former Aberdeen defender Charlie Mulgrew is reportedly another target.

I can’t blame Campbell. He won’t be getting first team football at the Emirates so a move to Celtic where he can lengthen a good career r by another two years is a wise choice. Well done to him for a great previous 6 months at Arsenal where he played absolutely great. Good Luck Sol.
