Hull City have re-signed forward Fraizer Campbell on a free transfer from Crystal Palace. The forward previously had a pretty successful spell with the Tigers and once again is back with the club to make some statement.
Fraizer was at the KCOM Stadium back in 2007-08 during a very influential campaign. Hull were fighting for the promotion and the 29-year-old hit 15 goals to pull off an impressive campaign which eventually ended in a very productive manner as the Tigers got their much-deserved promotion that season.
Since their demotion to the Championship last season, Leonid Slutsky’s side have seen a number of players with the likes of Tom Huddlestone, Harry Maguire, Eldin Jakupovic and Ahmed Elmohamady departing from the KCOM Stadium.
Hull City supporters are going to rejoice after a long time as a large section of the supporters have grown frustrated with the recent amount of departures. The forward came through the ranks at Manchester United but has rarely been seen in the Red jersey.
He has been at a number clubs including the likes of Cardiff City, Tottenham Hotspur and Sunderland, honing his skills. Slutsky would love to have a player of his calibre who has good experience of playing in the Championship.
According to reports, the player has put pen to paper on a two year deal with the option of extending for another year. He has been released by Crystal Palace after his contract expired. The Tigers seized this opportunity to broker a deal for the player who has earlier shown his mettle in the Hull colours.
Campbell expressed his happiness. “I’m delighted to be a Tiger again and hopefully it can go the same way as it did last time with us winning promotion to the Premier League
“I’m looking forward to playing at the KCOM Stadium again and I can’t wait to get started.”
Hull would be seeking redemption after failing to keep themselves up in the Premier League and Campbell would love to lend his hand to help the side like he did in his previous stint. Campbell failed to make a single start for Palace last season as all of his appearances came from the bench.
Hull have given him a chance to rectify his career and the centre forward would like to have a go in this upcoming season. Fellow promotional contenders like Middlesbrough, Aston Villa and Leeds United are almost done with their business and if Hull want to stay in the hunt they have to dig deep in the transfer market.
