Hull City are on the verge of completing the signing of free agent Fraizer Campbell, according to the Hull Daily Mail’s, Philip Buckingham.
Campbell is expected to arrive at the KCOM Stadium on a free transfer, and having already agreed terms, a medical is all that stands in the way of him returning to Hull.
The 29-year-old was released by Crystal Palace at the conclusion of the 2016/17 campaign, after he struggled for opportunities at Selhurst Park, making just 13 appearances in the last 12-months.
#hcafc have agreed terms with Fraizer Campbell. Free transfer subject to a medical. Smart addition in my mind.

The striker is now set for a return to Hull, where he enjoyed a magnificent loan spell during the 2007/08 campaign.
During that spell with the Tigers, Campbell scored 15 goals from 37 appearances, helping the club to promotion to the Premier League, via the play-offs.
The arrival of Campbell is likely to lift the pressure off Leonid Slutsky and Hull, who have endured a difficult summer so far following their relegation from the Premier League.
Curtis Davies, Harry Maguire, Tom Huddlestone and Josh Tymon have all been high-profile departures, whilst Andrew Robertson and Ahmed Elmohamady are also nearing the exit door.
