Fraizer Campbell joins Crystal Palace from Cardiff City

Portsmouth V Cardiff FA Cup

The 26-year-old has finally ended speculation about his playing future, signing for Crystal Palace.

Cardiff City striker Fraizer Campbell has finally moved on from the Welsh capital, with Wales Online reporting he has signed for Crystal Palace.

Campbell joins up with Tony Pulis at Palace after rejecting several approaches from newly promoted Leicester City. The former Manchester United striker had been in talks with the Foxes but failed to agree personal terms.

The fee for his services is expected to be in the region of £800,000, and could rise to as much as £1million with further add-ons.

Campbell becomes the second of Cardiff’s ‘big four’ players to vacate the club this summer, after Steven Caulker signed for Queen’s Park Rangers earlier this week. Goalkeeper David Marshall and Chile World Cup hero Gary Medel are also expected to be leaving the Bluebirds, with the latter having been the subject of a reported £10million bid from Galatasaray.

Medel had been on the radar of Italian giants Inter Milan,w ith the clubs officials even flying into Cardiff to try and complete a deal last week. Marshall was also linked with a move to Arsenal, but the Gunners seem to have shelved their interest due to a big asking price from Cardiff.

Campbell was top-scorer for the Bluebirds in their debut Premier League season last campaign with six goals, but could not do enough to halt their slide back down to the Championship.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already put in the work to replace the inevitably outgoing Campbell, signing Javi Guerra, Federico Macheda and Adam Le Fondre so far this summer.

Will Cardiff City make an immediate return to the Premier League next season?
