Sol To Be New Boris?

SOL CAMPBELL is reportedly set to meet imminently with Boris Johnson, with the former England footballer's political aspirations on the agenda.

William Hill are offering 10/1 that Sol -recently suggested as a potential candidate for the newly vacant Kensington constituency - will become an MP by the end of 2020, and 50/1 that he will succeed Boris Johnson as London Mayor at the 2016 Mayoral Election.

'Sol has made no secret of his interest in pursuing a political career, and this meeting with Boris could well result in a concrete offer of support being forthcoming' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Meanwhile, another well known 'celebrity' name in the news, Jeremy Clarkson, is offered at 50/1 by William Hill to become an MP before the end of 2020.
