Cardiff City striker Fraizer Campbell could make a swift return to the Premier League after reports in the Mirror suggested the former Manchester United trainee is keen to leave the South Wales club following their relegation from the Premier League.
Hull City and Stoke City are believed to be interested and may look to pounce quickly as the forward could be as available for as little as £800,000 if rumours about a release clause in the England international’s contract are true.
Campbell led the line for Cardiff for most of the season; his highlights being a brace scored in Cardiff’s early season 3-2 defeat of eventual champions Manchester City and an equalising goal in a 2-2 home draw with United last November. Despite a fairly modest return of six goals in 37 appearances Campbell was one of the rare successes in a dreadful season for the Bluebirds.
His pace, energy and work rate was Cardiff’s main source of menace and with better service and support around him he may have reached double figures.
These are certainly the qualities that will be attracting a number of clubs in the Premier League, and if Campbell can be acquired for less than £1million it would represent a low-risk purchase.
