Sol Campbell

Having announced his intention to run as a Conservative Party candidate for London Mayor, former England and Arsenal FC footballer Sol Campbell has been priced at 50/1 by William Hill to win the mayoral race.

The former England defender will take part in a hustings event with other candidates for the Tory nomination on 4 July. Campbell who has acknowledged to the media that at present he is not considered a “frontrunner”, stated that he would “change London for everybody”.

Releasing its odds on the next London Mayor market, William Hill has priced Campbell at 20/1 to win the Tory nomination. The bookmaker has placed Zac Goldsmith MP for Richmond Park at 4/1 to take the Tory candidacy, with London European MP Syed Kamall a close second favourite at 5/1.

Former Secretary of Culture & Media, Tessa Jowell currently heads the outright London Mayor market, as a firm favourite at 6/5.

At present William Hill favours a Labour London victory at 2/7. The bookmaker has further priced Tooting MP Sadiq Khan as second favourite to win at 7/2, with Tottenham MP David Lammy also placed amongst the leading candidates at 8/1.

Whilst Sol Campbell may consider himself a frontrunner for London Mayor, William Hill believes that the former England international could have a future in politics offering 4/1 odds on Campbell becoming an MP by 2020.
