Huddersfield Town are interested in signing Hull City striker Fraizer Campbell on a free transfer in the summer, according to reports from Hull Live.
The 31-year-old has been one of the Tigers’ standout performers under Nigel Adkins this season, but is currently facing an uncertain future at the KCOM Stadium.
The club have opted against triggering the 12-month extension in Campbell’s deal thus far, with manager Adkins revealing earlier this month that the club would be unable to cover the costs once a reduced budget comes into effect next term.
The former Manchester United forward has scored 12 goals and produced six assists for the East Yorkshire side this season, taking his tally up to 18 goals in 51 league starts since joining from Crystal Palace in 2017.
But with his contract set to expire at the end of the campaign, Huddersfield Town are said to be eyeing up a move for the experienced front-man, as the Terriers prepare for life in the Championship.
Jan Siewert’s men were the first team to book their place in the second tier for next season after being relegated from the Premier League, and are reportedly interested in signing the proven forward on a free transfer.
The Tigers have the option to renegotiate terms with Campbell, but could well lose out to the striker’s hometown club in the summer.
Hull currently occupy 9th spot in the Sky Bet Championship table, and sit five points off the play-offs with just four games left to play this season.
This would be an absolute bargain of a signing for Huddersfield next season.
Campbell has proved this season that despite getting on a bit, he can still contribute to plenty of goals and assists at this level.
The experience and knowhow that he would provide both on and off the pitch can definitely help the Terriers in making an immediate return to the Premier League next term.
