Huddersfield Town have completed the signing of free agent Fraizer Campbell on a two-year deal.
The 31-year-old striker was available on a free transfer after he was released by Hull City this summer and has signed a deal that will keep him at his hometown club until 2021 – although the club have the option of a further year.
Campbell scored twelve goals in 39 appearances for Hull last season, as the Tigers finished 13th in the Championship table under Nigel Adkins.
The forward was unable to agree a new deal at the KCOM Stadium and spent time training at non-league Brighouse Town this summer.
Huddersfield head coach Jan Siewert has brought in several new players this summer as he looks to build a team that can challenge for promotion from the Championship this season, following their relegation from the Premier League last term.
The Terriers started their campaign with a 2-1 defeat at home to Derby County and drew 1-1 at Queens Park Rangers at the weekend.
Campbell could make his debut for his hometown club in the EFL Cup tie against Lincoln City tomorrow night or when Fulham visit the John Smith’s Stadium in the Championship on Saturday.
This could be a decent signing for Huddersfield on a free transfer. Campbell is a decent player and he’s got plenty of experience in the Championship.
Campbell scored twelve goals for Hull in the Championship last season – his most productive season for over a decade – but he’s well past his prime as a striker and his record over the past few years hasn’t been that impressive.
Huddersfield will be hoping to challenge for promotion from the Championship this season, so I can’t see Campbell starting many games for them ahead of the likes of Karlan Grant, but he could turn out to be a decent signing on a free transfer.
