Sol Campbell

After nine seasons as the mainstay of the Tottenham Hotspur defence, Sol Campbell made the controversial move across north London to Arsenal in 2001, where, in his first season, he helped the Gunners to their second Premier League title.  

Campbell was then part of the 2003/04 "Invincibles", where his displays at the back were key in Arsene Wenger’s team going unbeaten in the league that season.  

He is one of only three central defenders to make more than 500 Premier League appearances.
