Fulham join Campbell chase

Fulham are one of a number of Championship clubs competing to sign Motherwell midfielder Allan Campbell this summer, according to Football Insider.

The Scottish midfielder will soon be a free agent after deciding to leave Fir Park at the end of his current contract and Fulham have joined Luton, Millwall and Peterborough in the race for the 22 year-old’s signature. Campbell has also been linked with a switch to Hibernian and Aberdeen as he contemplates his future having made 163 appearances since breaking into the Motherwell first team back in 2016.

Campbell, who helped Motherwell to two successive domestic Cup finals in 2017 where they were beaten by Celtic, has won 24 caps for Scotland at under-21 level, scoring one goal. Motherwell will be entitled to a development fee having brought the tough-tackling midfielder through their academy set-up and it remains to be seen where one of the brightest talents in Scottish football will be heading next. He made 40 appearances for Motherwell this season, scoring five goals.

Fulham will be seeking midfield reinforcements this summer as they plan for an immediate return to the Premier League after being relegated last season.

Fulham considering move for Campbell?

Fulham are reportedly interested in signing the Crystal Palace striker Fraizer Campbell.

Eagles boss Alan Pardew has told the 27 year-old forward that he is surplus to requirements at Selhurst Park after failing to make much of impact with Palace since his £900,000 transfer from Cardiff City last summer. He scored five goals in 22 games and his eight-minute appearance as a substitute on the final day of the season against Swansea was his first in three months after being sidelined with a hamstring problem.

Campbell came through the youth set-up at Manchester United, but played just four first-team games at Old Trafford. He enjoyed a successful loan spell at Hull City helping them win promotion from the Championship via the play-offs, scoring 15 goals in 32 appearances and then joined Tottenham a season-long loan, scoring his first Premier League goal at Craven Cottage in November 2008. A £3.5m move to Sunderland the following year was wrecked by two anterior cruciate ligament injuries that kept him out of football for a year and a half, meaning he scored ten goals in 67 games on Wearside.

Having signed for Cardiff in January 2013, Campbell’s goals helped the Welsh club win promotion to the Premier League for the first time and he famously scored twice from set-pieces to record the Bluebirds’ first victory of the next campaign over defending champions Manchester City. He finished the season with nine goals and joined Palace in July 2014 after they matched the release clause in his contract.

Fulham are reportedly one of a number of clubs interested in signing the former England under-21 international and have also been linked with a move for Palace forward Dwight Gayle. Campbell’s rumoured £30,000-a-week wages could prove prohibitive, however, as Kit Symons looks to supplement his striking options.
