Leaky Arsenal official website breaks news

Sol Campbell is on the verge of sealing a deal with Arsenal – but the club’s website has jumped the gun by accidentally announcing the signing.

A news story on the Gunners’ website said: “Sol Campbell is back at Arsenal. The 35-year-old has re-signed for the Club he graced for five years between 2001 and 2006 and will make his comeback for the Reserves at West Ham on Tuesday night.”

The story was picked up by the Daily Mail, but was swiftly withdrawn from the Arsenal site.

Arsenal claim the story was published in error. Must just be a bored webmaster having fun with the craziest story he could think of then…

Update: Campbell will play for Arsenal’s reserves tonight. The news item on their website announcing the line-up clarifies that talks over a move are ongoing.
