Campbell could join Huddersfield on loan.
FRAIZER CAMPBELL will end his Sunderland nightmare in January and move to hometown club Huddersfield Town.
The Sunday Sun understands the striker, who is surplus to requirements at the Stadium of Light, is being lined up for a loan deal with the Championship side.
As the 25-year-old is in the last year of his contract with Sunderland, he is more than likely to have played his last game for the club he joined from Manchester United in 2009 for £3.5million.

Fraizer Campbell could be set to end his torrid time at the Stadium of Light and return to hometown club Huddersfield in January.
A move to the Championship strugglers would represent a sharp drop for the 25-year-old, who made his England debut in March after impressing for the Black Cats following his return to full fitness after two career-threatening knee injuries.
But it seems Campbell has failed to impress Sunderland boss Martin O’Neill, despite a chronic shortage of strikers in the North East, after the departures of Niklas Bendtner and Asamoah Gyan over the summer.
Huddersfield enquired about Campbell – formerly of Tottenham and Man United – over the summer and boss Simon Grayson could now offer the striker a chance to get his career back on track.
The Yorkshire club lost 40-goal wonder Jordan Rhodes to Blackburn in August and would welcome additional firepower up front.
A six-month loan move to Huddersfield could well suit all parties.
