Campbell on the Move?

By | 30th August 2008

Hull City manager Phil Brown is attempting to use the situation surrounding Dimitar Berbatov as he attempts to land Fraizer Campbell. The Tigers have made a £7 million bid, and Brown is hoping that United’s quest to sign the Bulgarian could deliver the young Englishman to the KC Stadium.

However Ferguson may want to hold on to the England Under-21s player, who spent 7 months on loan with Hull last season scoring 15 goals, as he already has a depleted strike force, allowing both Louis Saha and Dong Fangzhuo to move on. While Saha’s exit may open an opportunity for Campbell at United, any potential arrival of a new striker could further hinder Campbell’s chances of becoming a first-team regular.

Campbell has impressed his Old Trafford manager during pre-season, netting in wins over Espanyol and Kaiser Chiefs. The youngster is deemed to have a bright future at Manchester United, so any approaches are likely to be rejected. Not that this has deterred Phil Brown. The Tigers boss has previously stated his desire to bring Campbell back to Hull permanently.

Campbell was included in Manchester United’s squad to play Zenit St Petersburg in the Super Cup final on Friday.
