EX-England captain Sol Campbell is being sued for more than £800,000 after pulling out of buying a £3.85million flat.
Sol, 49, and wife Fiona had put a ten per cent (£387,500) deposit down on the home in London’s swish Cadogan Square.
The flat’s owner Lady Jadranka Beresford-Peirse has lodged papers at the High Court which claim the pair signed a contract to buy in 2021 but failed to pay the balance due.
Widow Lady Jadranka is seeking a total of about £810,000 in alleged losses and new sale costs.
Ex-Spurs and Arsenal defender Sol played 73 times for England.
Campbell then went on to manage Macclesfield Town and Southend United.
He married interior designer Fiona Barratt, granddaughter of Barratt Homes founder Sir Lawrie Barratt, in 2010.
Lady Jadranka now accuses Sol and Fiona Campbell of breach of contract, saying they failed to pay the balance due for the flat, and threatened to sue them for specific performance of the contract if they failed to go ahead with the deal.
She is seeking an order which would force them to have to buy the flat and pay her compensation.
