But Campbell, 47, was forced to go to court for an eviction order when the tenant failed to pay rent, Daily Mail reports.

The renter, who claimed to have sold his insurance business for £1billion, was locked into a two-year contract through estate agency Savills.

However they only paid ex-Southend Utd manager Campbell the deposit and three months’ rent for his £23million mansion.

The Arsenal centre-back is said to have hired a private investigator and discovered he was named in the Panama Papers, which exposed the financial records of the rich and famous.

Campbell told the newspaper: “He’s apparently getting divorced, he’s paying two or three staff, he’s paying school fees.

“He’s paying everyone — except me.”

Campbell has now issued an eviction notice that takes effect later this month.

The defender and interior designer wife Fiona, whose grandfather founded Barratt Homes, have now put the mansion on the market for a cool £23million.

Savills said references and credit checks were carried out, adding: “The decision to proceed with a tenancy rests solely with the property owner.”

Campbell enjoyed a successful career, which started in 1992 at Tottenham where he amassed 295 appearances and won the 1999 League Cup.

He drew controversy when he switched sides to join North London rivals Arsenal in 2001.

The star played 211 games and won three FA Cup trophies as well as two Premier League titles.

He was also part of the Gunners’ 2004 Invincibles side that went unbeaten in their 38 League matches.
