Frazier Campbell’s move to Leicester City from Cardiff City collapses after the Foxes refused to meet the striker’s wage demands, reports Wales Online.
With the move to Leicester falling through it now leaves the door open for Crystal Palace, although Campbell could still stay with the Bluebirds.
The Foxes and Palace are the only clubs to have triggered Campbell’s release clause, which is believed to be £800,000 and rises to £900,000-plus with add-ons in terms of appearances and goals.
Wales Online believe the 26-year-old was demanding £40,000-a-week wages which has put off Leicester but Palace still remain in talks.
The Huddersfield-born striker is under contract with Cardiff until 2016 but the Welsh club are powerless to stop him leaving once the release clause has been activated.
Campbell joined Cardiff City for £650,000 in January 2013 and has scored 16 goals in 51 appearances.
