Crystal Palace signs Cardiff’s Fraizer Campbell
Crystal Palace signed England international Fraizer Campbell from Cardiff City for an undisclosed fee on Friday.
Campbell agreed a three-year contract with the south London club as the striker made an immediate return to the Premier League following Cardiff’s relegation from the top-flight last season.
The 26-year-old is believed to have cost Palace £800,000 ($1.35 million) after they triggered a release clause in the former Manchester United trainee’s contract.
“CPFC are delighted to confirm the signing of striker Fraizer Campbell from Cardiff City on a three year contract for an undisclosed fee,” Palace announced on their official Twitter feed.
Campbell, who made his only England appearance as a substitute in a friendly against the Netherlands in 2012, scored just nine goals last term as the Bluebirds slumped into the Championship.
He spent 18 months at the Welsh club following his £650,000 switch from Sunderland in 2013.
Campbell also had loan spells at Royal Antwerp, Hull and Tottenham during his five-year spell with United, for whom he made just two first-team appearances.
