West Ham look set to make a surprise bid for Newcastle United defender Sol Campbell, according to The Sun.

The former Arsenal man has failed to settle in the north-east and has found it hard to impress manager Alan Pardew, making just six appearances this season for the Magpies.

Hammers boss Avram Grant is hoping Campbell's vast experience will help his ailing side out of relegation trouble.

The 36-year-old was hoping for a third stint at Arsenal, but boss Arsene Wenger has ruled out any return.

Campbell is willing to move to Upton Park but is looking at a deal longer than just six months.
