Campbell had held transfer talks with Leicester City but the move fell through and the 26-year-old now appears to be on the verge of joining Tony Pulis in south London.

Reports claimed the former Manchester United striker had a £600,000 release clause in his contract which Palace and Leicester have both triggered.


Campbell could not prevent Cardiff from suffering relegation in 2013/14, despite scoring nine goals, but he is now set for a swift return to the Premier League to a club and manager whom is looking to better their 11th place finish last campaign.


When joining Cardiff in January 2012, the 26-year-old forward was a sensation, scoring 7 league goals in 12 appearances, however, last season he scored one less league goal in 24 more appearances.

So, his goalscoring is on and off at times, however, Campbell is a very energetic, selfless player that will make runs, drawing away defenders for a team-mate to create a chance. He can be a good edition to the Palace squad, and will likely partner Marouane Chamakh in home games, with the club looking to play more attacking football.

Cardiff's demise

Campbell's Cardiff team-mate Steven Caulker has already left the club after joining Queens Park Rangers for £8.5 million and World Cup star Gary Medel looks to be heady to Inter Milan in a £6 million deal soon. Cardiff City boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already resigned himself to losing his star players following relegation.
