Campbell spent the season on loan at the east Yorkshire club during the 2007/08 campaign, in which the Tigers recorded their first ever promotion to England’s top flight.

Campbell recorded 15 league goals during that season, and assisted Dean Windass’ winning volley in the play-off final at Wembley against Bristol City.

Upon promotion the Tigers tried to make Campbell’s stay permanent, but were unable to agree on a fee and wages, leading to former England U21 international signing for Sunderland instead, following a season-long loan at Tottenham Hotspur.

Wages could once again prove to be a stumbling block, as Alan Pardew is reportedly looking for Campbell’s full wage of £35,000-a-week to be covered by the club that loans him.

Hull City are currently short on attacking options, with new signing Adama Diomande out until November following groin surgery, and Abel Hernandez and Chuba Akpom being the only two recognised strikers at Steve Bruce’s disposal.

The Tigers currently lie fourth in the Sky Bet Championship, a point off Middlesbrough in second, and six points off top of the table Brighton and Hove Albion.

Hull City face Queens Park Rangers at the KC Stadium on Saturday.
