Football League Transfer Talk: Including Olsson and Campbell

Blackburn Celebration

Blackburn Rovers, Cardiff City, Brighton and Birmingham City all feature.

West Ham United have made a second bid in their pursuit of Blackburn Rovers full back Martin Olsson. The Swedish star was the subject of a £2 million bid from the Hammers last week but Blackburn rejected the deal, holding out for a fee closer to £5 million.

Cardiff City are thought to be considering a move for Sunderland striker Frazier Campbell. The striker has found it difficult to get into Martin O’Neill’s first team and has scored just one goal in his last 15 appearances for the club which has forced him into pushing for a move away from the Stadium of Light.

Brighton and Hove Albion have completed the signing of Argentinean striker Leonardo Ulloa on a four and a half year deal from Almeria. He had a one in two ratio for his former club and Brighton boss Gus Poyet has said he is the striker the club have been searching for.

Birmingham City are on the hunt for former Celtic goalkeeper Lubos Kamenar. The Slovakian ‘keeper was on loan at the Scottish champions from Nantes and Birmingham are thought to be keen on a deal to guard themselves against the possibility that Jack Butland may leave.

The MK Dons have refused to give Blackpool permission to talk to their manager Karl Robinson. Blackpool had made an official request to chat to Robinson, who is thought to be keen on taking over the managerial role at Bloomfield Road. MK Dons released a statement confirming their stance.

Nathan Tyson has signed on loan with Millwall until the end of the season. The striker had fallen out of favour at Derby County and says he is looking forward to playing at the Den for the rest of the season. His current deal at Derby expires in the summer of 2014.

Jean-Alain Franchone has left Watford after the club cancelled his loan contract by mutual consent. He will return to his parent club Udinese after making just a single appearance for the Championship side. He played a total of 74 minutes for the club during his stay.
