Breaking News: Red Devils Accept Offer From Tigers For Campbell

Brian RhodesSenior Analyst IJune 7, 2009

It is understood that Manchester United have accepted an undisclosed offer from Hull City for Fraizer Campbell.

Fraizer Campbell, who was part of the deal that took Dimitar Berbatov to Manchester United last season, spent the 2008/2009 season with the Tottenham Hotspurs. Prior to this, Campbell had spent the majority of the 2007/2008 season with the Tigers.

His spell with the East Yorkshire outfit was instrumental in their promotion to the Premiership via the Championship Playoffs. It was the wonderful flick back from Campbell that allowed Dean Windass to become the oldest scorer at Wembley Stadium and promote Hull City to the top flight for the first time in the club's history.

It was no suprise that the Hull City management tried to sign Campbell last season, fielding a seven-million pound bid for the young star. However, Sir Alex Ferguson used him as leverage to pry Berbatov away from the Spurs.

Although, there is no denying the undoubted talent of the youngster, he has struggled to find a first-team place at White Hart Lane, especially after the London club re-signed Robbie Keane from Liverpool.

Hull City and Fraizer Campbell will have to come to personal terms, but Campbell has  stated on a number of occasions that he loves the Tigers as a club after his very special time there.
