Campbell Joins Palace

Crystal Palace are delighted to confirm the signing of striker Fraizer Campbell for an undisclosed fee. 
 
The 26-year-old has penned a three-year contract at Selhurst Park after agreeing to join the Eagles from Championship side Cardiff City. 
 
Former Manchester United frontman Campbell attracted plenty of interest from fellow Premier League clubs this summer, but has opted to link up with Tony Pulis’ men in SE25. 
 
Campbell was a product of the academy set-up at Old Trafford but was limited to just four first team appearances for the Red Devils, although he did enjoy productive loan spells at Hull City and Tottenham Hotspur, scoring 15 goals during the 2007/08 campaign with the Tigers as they won promotion to the Premier League via the play-offs. 
 
That form earned him a £3.5m switch to Sunderland in the summer of 2009, but he was used mainly as a substitute during his time on Wearside, which yielded 10 goals from 36 starts. 
 
By January 2013, Campbell joined Cardiff City, hitting seven goals in 12 games at the back end of the campaign to fire the Bluebirds to the Championship title. 
 
But he was unable to save the Welsh outfit from relegation last season despite bagging nine goals in all competitions, including a memorable brace in the 3-2 win over eventual Premier League champions Manchester City in August 2013. 
 
Now Campbell has made an instant return to the top flight and cannot wait to get started with his new squad here at Selhurst Park.
