Campbell took charge of League Two side Macclesfield in November when they were five points adrift at the foot of the Football League and managed to steer them to safety. He still has a year left on his contract with the Cheshire side.

The former England international played over 500 games in his playing career for the likes of Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Portsmouth and is now looking to climb up the managerial ladder.
