Crystal Palace complete Campbell capture



Crystal Palace have this afternoon completed the signing of Fraizer Campbell from Cardiff City.

The BBC understands that the London club had triggered a clause in the player’s contract which allowed him to leave Cardiff.

Campbell, 26, had also been in talks with Palace’s Premier League rivals Leicester City but has opted to join the Eagles instead.

It is believed that the initial fee is around £900,000, but it could rise closer to £1 million.

The one-time England international joined the Bluebirds from Sunderland in January 2013 for £650,000, scoring 16 goals in 51 games.

He becomes Palace’s second summer signing, following the free transfer of Blackpool goalkeeper Chris Kettings.

Leicester confirmed the signing of Leonardo Ulloa from Brighton earlier this week for a fee which is believed to be around £7 million – the most the club has ever payed for a player.

They are, however, still on the lookout for another striker, and with Campbell choosing Selhurst Park over the King Power Stadium, the Foxes are rumoured to be turning their interests towards Watford’s Troy Deeney.
