Can Hull City’s new attacking option fire them to an instant PL return?



Hull City manager Leonid Slutsky is slowly but surely beginning to put his own mark on the squad at the KCOM Stadium, and will hope to fully prepare his side for the season opener at Aston Villa in just over two weeks time.

Departures galore have been the theme on Humberside this summer, with Harry Maguire, Tom Huddlestone and Ahmed Elmohamady all having left the club in recent weeks, and now is time for Slutsky to begin replacing his departing men.

Slutsky has moved to bolster his attacking line up with the acquisition of former Manchester United striker Fraizer Campbell on a free transfer, after the forward was released from Crystal Palace earlier in the summer.

Campbell enjoyed a successful spell with the Tigers back in the 2007/08 season, in which he managed an impressive 15 goals in just 34 appearances as a fresh faced 19 year old.

The goals have dried up a little since then, but back in familiar surroundings, Campbell could really kick on under former Russia boss Slutsky.

The 29-year-old has a point to prove having failed to really live up to the potential he once showed at United, and this spell with Hull may be his last chance of having another crack at Premier League football.

Campbell has remained pacy and has the ability to finish, and in the right team could easily surpass the 15 goal mark.

If Slutsky can find a system that suits the striker, Hull could really draw the best from the child prodigy in the Championship next semester.
