Sol Campbell is set to venture into the managerial arena for the first time, according to The Times.

The former England defender will reportedly land his first job as a manager within the next few weeks, although it is likely to be abroad, as he believes he is appreciated more on the Continent.

It is not known who the club is or where it's located, but Campbell, a former Arsenal youth coach, has stated that he is in "active negotiations".

Campbell hung up his boots back in 2012, putting an end to a hugely successful playing career during which he won two Premier League, four FA Cups, the League Cup and Community Shield, while he represented his country 73 times.

The 42-year-old went on to pursue a career in politics, but recently failed in his attempt to be shortlisted for the Conservative Party's London mayoral candidate for 2016.

Campbell, who backed Brexit, is now keen to return to the beautiful game, and could very well crop up in a dugout in the near future.
